This is only possil)le when your wheel

150.000 IN 



Coaster Brake 

Can you imagine anythin,^ jtleasanter than a >>j)iij ijito the country? 

When y«)ur wheel is fitted with the MORROW COASTER BRAKE, von can 
ride and rest without getting off your wheel. A siin])le back pressure on yonr ped- 
als tloes it and yon are hardly aw^are of it. 

No wonder thousands of old time cyclists have come bacN into the fold of enthusi-

So Rural Mall on Bad Roads 

G(»od roads as a requ;:»ue to the e-tabiish- 
meni of free rural mail delivery is a slogan 
of the post ofhce deparluient . 'y 

to hasten the day of more iattsfaotory ingh- 
ways. Once a farmer has had his mail de- 
livered to his very door, he feels it a bur- 
den to ' d anew to travel nu.« - 
to town on wnai may prove a fruiile«s jour- 
ney. With free rural delivery the farmer 
is not called upon t.) waste time. If mail is 
addre>-cd to linn, it Cijuu - t.. li- i.irm; ii 
there is none for him, lie ilocsn'i tind it 
necessary to spend time and etVort in travel- 
ing to town ni irder to make the disco%*ery 
that there is noihing addressed to htm.

Cycling Negatives Worth Memorizing 

Don't forget thai it is just a- far h -ino a- 
it is going - at'.. 

Don't !ea\e your wheel oiu-dc a:i 'ttice 
buiid !ig. S otneoue may whi u, 

D«)n"l buy a wheel -'mfe\- becii;- : is 
cheaj). Renietiibcr you have only one neck. 

Don't overdo things at the >tart. Cycling 
is a goud ihmg but hke every tjlher good 
thing can be worked too much. 

Don't pay any attenf.ui to the big gear 
the fellow Hex: door rnU ■■ • iet one to -uit 
yfHir own style and strength and stick • p t. 

Don't rely on the other fellow h.i\ ;ng an 
oil can or wrench. Better take one a.onjr, 
frir he may have forgotten his. 

De.n't forget that you have a bell •:; your 
macli.tu ; .it tiie same time il is often '>e;ter 
for you to go a Httle out of your w,i\ 
to ritig -t. 

D<»n't take your wheel apart every: nu yoti 
come hiime frotu a ride. Ktep ;t clean and

Winning: the First Prize, $350.00 

Having completcil a special coutm of chem- 
istry and mining engineering al \ ale. I ftad 
decided t<t enter upon a course r>i" jiractical 
study and experience at the mining camp of 
an nncic in tlie c-tppcr region (»f Montana, 
and withiti a few^ days after I had bid adieu 
to my chiim^ at Xew Haven, was en route for 
the west, tilled witii plea-ant ant -cipalions of 
a welcome changu of environment and occu- 

Without incident worth recording I arrived 
at the little mining city of U — , some U) m:Ies 
trum which were located my uncle's mines. 
I noted as I rode along in the l>ig carry-all 
that i»a<l been ^ent i<> 1, v-.:ve nic .it the rail- 
way station that the surrouniiing country was 
apparently one great stretch of tableland, un- 
til, as we approached the mountains, there 
was a sheer dip downward of fully three 
miles, the grade being very steep, but the 
road hard and smooth — a perfect natural 
highway. At the foot of the long incline was 
an arroya. or gorge, down which tumbled a 
mountain stream — a» inviting a l)it of trout 
water as one cmiM ask. A bridge of strong 
timbers about s;x feet in width, ^panned the 
gorge, and a climb of a mile em the opposite 
side brought us to a cunjp. 

A praciical experience of eight months at 
the mines convinced me that while "book 
learning" may be an excellent foutidation for 
the future usetulness of a mining engineer, 
he still has a very essential part «»f his etluca- 
tion ahead of him. I w.»rked hard, however, 
and within the year been appointed as- 
sistant general manager at the camp. 1 liad 
made m.iny fnemls among the empl<<ye-. ,ind 
in the discharge of my duties, some enemies, 
among the latter our fierman bookkeeper, a 
sullen, ugly tempered chap, upon wh<>m. be- 
fore my arrival, my uncle had been depend- 
ent to a considerable extent, and who watch- 
ed my rapid rise in favor with anything but 
gooil feeling. After having overlooked several 
oflfenses. and alter due consultation with the 
general manager, I discharged the man for in- 
ebrity, and i»rdered him to turn over his 
booksjo his assistant. He obeyed, but left 
the iitTtce With a muttered threat, which, 
however, caused me no uneasiness. I saw 
him about the camp for several days, his as- 
tocjate>. aiier iiis discharge, being a hait- 
brecd who answered to the sobriquet of 
"Brown Pete." and several hangers-on and 
ne'er-do-wells, with whom he spent his re- 
maining wages freely at the local groggery. 

Part of my duties was the transaction of 
the banking business of the camp. The near- 
est bank was at L . fortv-two miles dis- 

tant, and <ince each week I made the journey 
—on horse back in wet weather, and on my 
bicycle when the roads were in good condi- 
tion. Three or four days after d'scharging 
Hermann I mounted my wheel and started 

for L . The circulating medium of the 

camp had beci*me low and it was clear that 
the receipts at the sui)ply store would not 
make up the amount of the pay roll i^n Satur* 
day. About $2,U0U was required, and my 
journey to L-- — was for the purpose of draw- 
ing this amount from bank. 

It was a perfect morning, the air dry and 
crisp and .he rmds in excellcn, condition. 1 
dismounted for a moment at the .Arroya 
bridge and noted that the stream was wilder 
than I had ever before seen it. In fact, it had 
grown into a rushing torrent, and the waters, 
muddy and discolored, were boiling and 
seething within two feet of the bridge tim- 
bers — the result of the spring freshet from 
the sneiw-covered mountains. Remounting, I 
climbed the long hill leisurely, and four hours 

later entered the bank at L , drew the 

necessary funds, transacted some other busi- 
ness, and at 3 o'clock started on my return 

About half-way between the camp and 

L^ stood a little inn. or road house, the 

only building within a radius of twenty miles, 
where refreshment thtainable for man 
and beast. I stopned here for a brief rest, 
and somewhat to my surprise, as I entered 
the door saw my two ne\r-d' •wells of the 
camp— Hermann and Brown Pete— seated at 
a table in the bar-r.iom. I spoktj to them 
pleasantly, but received >m\\' an indifferent 
nod in return. I knew titey i)ore nie to love, 
however, .iiiu presuming that they were on 

their way to L , partook of a glass of 

beer and c<tnt;mie»l my inurney. 

1 had left tlie inn perhaps a mile behind, 
when distini huoi beats caught luy ear, and 
look'ng over my shoulder. I saw two horse- 
men a quarter of a mile to my rear. "So.** 
thought I, " two worthies are bound for 

camp, and not for L . I had begun to 

hope we were well rid of them.** 

Noticing a few monuiu- 'a:er that the hoof 
heats were becoming more distinct, I turned 
in my saddle and saw that Hermann and Pete 
had considerably lessened the distance be- 
tween us. "W'r.nder what they are up to," I 
reflected. "Perhaps they want a race. Well, 
they shall have it." 

The stretch ot rr tdway at this point was 
the best on tne •■ »ute. the turf being springy 
und smoo-h and ^rm as South African veldt, 
so putting a little extia pressure on my ped- 

als I swung into a pace of perhaps fifteen 
miles an hour. Looking back presently, I 
saw that the horsemen also had increased 
their pace, and frimi their manner of riding 
were bent upon doing even better. I, accord- 
ingly, leaned a little further over the handle 
bars and was si>on riding at a clip I hoped 
might leave my pursuers behind. The effect 
upon Pete and Hermann. h<»wever. was well 
calculated to make me uneasy. Both had be- 
gun to whip furiously. The ponies broke into 
a swift run and I could hear the calls of their 
riders as T turned my ear toward them. 

.\5 we ,\ere now fully ten miles frotn the 
inn. and no one m sight, I bad not the slight- 
est intention of allowing them to come up 
with me. Moreover, I had $i,i>00 in my coat 
pocket, ni which I believed either or l)Oth of 
the fellows would not hesitate to re!ie\e me. 
That their intentions were not friendly I was 
fully convinced, when one, two and three re- 
volver sliots rang out, and a glance showed 
me conclu5i%'ely that I wa- tiu r : irget. On 
level ground I saw that they must in time 
overtake me. but if I could reach the long 
down grade to the arr <ya I was e(iually cer- 
tain I could distance tliem. and so buckled 
down, witnout further retlecii' n, to the hard- 
est riding of which I was capable. An occa- 
sional glance ovei my .-ivjiilder. however, 
showed me that the pontes were gaining. 
Once my michine struck a bit of loose turf; 
the forwaril wheel turned, and I lurched un- 
steadily toward the side of the road I was 
in control again in an instant, but tor the 
moment I felt the blood leave my ^ice. and 
my iieart came up just a trille h.gher in my 
thror.t tnan wrs comfortab'- . Viuti was not 
nnrv' than a nii't aheaa of nic iiow to the l "vp 
t.f :he hill. Barr-i g accid»:n-. I should with- 
in three minutes or less wave my hat at my 
pursuers and simply double my pace. If U'lt 
— well. I had my revolver with me. and con- 
sequently a fighting chance left. 

That mile. 1 know, was the longest I ever 
covered: but I did it. an«l putting about all 
the breath I had left into an exultant yell. I 
waved my j)ursuers m idieu and plunged 
over the brow of the hill. There were two 
slight turns in the first mile, and then a 
straightway stretch at a thirty-degree pitch 
to the arroya bridge. 

I was so elated at my escape, of which I 
now felt assured, that I not only gave my 
wheel its head, but continued to press the 
pedals until I retained them wirh the greatest 
ditVicuIty. .\s T felt them getting away from 
me. I tried to back-pedal, but the strain of a 
twelve-mile race had told upon me and I was 
not equal to the effort. With a savage jerk 
one pedal left my toot and the other did the 
same trick a moment later.^ 

The pace was now terrific. Each side of 
the roadway danced past me in much the 
same m.anner n^ when thri>ugh the window 
of a railway car. I had w*atched the tele- 
graph wires sag up and down between the 

«^«», \f,. U „ i .,..,„,. .\,,. ,.,,-U:«„ ntlr%A 

blinded my eyes with tears; the wheel jump- 
ed and swayed beneath me like a thing of life, 
and still faster and faster I went, until, con- 
fused though my brain was, it dawned upon 
me that if my speed continued to increase, the 
wheel must soon be racked to pieces, or it it 
held together an inevitable collision at the 
Arroya bridge or at the turn just beyond 

would put an end to my ride and my life. I 
fully realized, however, that to jump or to 
fall off would be suicide; and so I clung to 
the bars in a sort of dumb despair that I now 
recall as some horrible nightmare. 

The end of the bridge which I was ap- 
proaching was reacheil through a cut s<une 
-<'•• feet long and I'J feet high, made to bring 
that end of the .-iructure toa level with the op- 
posite bank, so that my course feir that dis- 
tance was parallel with jagged masses of rock 
and hardened earth. Into this 1 rusheil at a 
pace that surely n<» living thing had ever be- 
fore traveled. .\ wild fear tlashed across my 
mind 1 might not In- abli- to guide the 
now trembling, flying machine that bore me 
between the narrow rails of the bridge, and 
that evvn thougli I might succeed in d(>ing 
so. I should never be able to stop beft»rc 
reaching the sharp turn fifty yards beyond. 

Within the second of time required to con- 
sider these things, however, the wheel had 
traversed fcalf tbc length of the cut. and with 
an involuntary groan, I gripped my handle 
bar and looked ahead. 

But where was I'f Where was the bn<l«e? 
It ha«l gone! There w.i- nothing between me 
and the opposite bank but a heaving, roar- 
ing mass of water that threatened certain 
death to any living thing it might draw be- 
neath Its rushing surface. Yes, there was one 
thing ahead of me besides the water. The 
torrent had evidently picked the bridge up in 
its mighty grasj) and had tossed its timbers 
jibou; 1- t child might scatter a bnnch of 
i.ick >;r:iw- in the air. One of these^ — a pon- 
derou- -iringer^ — had been thrown directly 
acro^^ the road at the edge of the water, and 
on to this I rtlfthed with tbc speed of an ex- 
press train. I tried to cry out. I would have 
jumped if I could have done so. But I was 
to(> numlied with the horror of my position 
to do either. There was one awful jar that 
forced the breath from my body, a flash be- 
fore my eyes like that of lightning, and all 
was over. 

When I recovered con-ci .uiness the black- 
ness of night was about me and tlie dank, 
heavy soil of the arroya l>ank beneath me. 
The roar and rush of nearby waters helped 
to recall the terror of my experience. an<l I 
began, though still dazed and lu-lples> to 
Wonder by what miracle my life had been pre- 
.served. Then the sound of voices and the 
flash of lanterns attracted my attention, and 
my cries soon brought to my side several 
miners, who. ftaring for tlu -afcty of the 
bridge and learning I had n-n returned, had 
come d'Wti to inspect the structure. 

Incredible as it may seem, the force of my 
collision with the big stringer, though it had 
cru-hed my wheel like an eggshell, had sent 
my body flying across t+ie flood to the oppo- 
site bank of the arroya— a sheer hurl of more 
than twenty feet. Fr>rtunately for me, the 
cour-e of my flight had been at a slight 
ane « . and I had landed upon the totigh 
nranchcs of the arroya bushes, almost as 
thick as English box hedge, which grew in 
profu-'on along the streams in Montana. 
Had I fallen into the roadway 1 should not 
now be here to tell of it. 

When the waters had sub-ifled, weeks later, 
I found my wheel half a mile below the 
bridge site wedged tightly between two great

run down, no appetite— and all the rest. I 
thoii^rht ;,>, I heard thi>: 

"Well, young man, you buy me, and I'll 
put you in condition in short order." 

They talked aln.ut Jack'-^ health a hmp tim<' 
and it leaked out that Jack's pliysioaii ha«l 
pre^cr;I.ld out-deM,r exerci>e, and lack'- '''f?, 
er thuti^-lit cyclmpT was the l.e-t 
Jack -ei-nied i'ldrferent. Then 
that he had never learned t.. ride and was 
afraid he could nut learn— a> ii anybody could 
! Finally it wa. decided that 
I'lU.ti ha\i- the use of an old decrepit 
wheel until he should Uarn t^ keep it going, 
and then he w.i> j^omg to buy a n«w one. 

It was a week before they returned and I 
was beginning to get anxiotis, i-.r I intended 
that Jack should be my i.winr. if possible. 
When they did come back, I noted that Jack 
was improved in health. Hi. color was bet 
fi-r and he was le>s indifferent about thing-. 
He t'»ok almost a lively interest in looking 
e.ver the assortment of cycles on hand. When 
they came to me. you can believe I was look- 
ing my best, Evervthing about me shone 
brighter than before and I w.i> <|uick and re- 
sponsis'e to every test. Jack seemed to know 
I wanted linn in buy me. fur his eyes lighted 
up at once he tried my running apparatus and 
he patted and fomlled my handle bars and 
saddle most affectionately. There was not 
much time wasted in talk after that, I was 
bought ;iiid i.iken away at once. 

They put a cyclometer on me before wc 
left the store — and that was the beginning of 
four happy years. 

Jack wa> a little uncertain in his movements 
just at first and .s-omctimcs it was hard work 
for me to kee]) hint in the saddle. Wc had 
several narrow e.%'apes, but got along with- 
tuit >ii:itu> accident. 

Indeed, u was not very long until Jack rode 
like a %'etpran, Kvery day he was stronger 
than the day before and he guided me about 
with perfect . im \*ery considerate, tini. was 
Jack, He aiway^ found the best places on 
the and toi,»k care to avoid sharp stone^^ 
which bruise one's tires and shake him up. 
you know. 

Day alter day we went out together. Jack 
and I. He gained health antl strength and 
I becc.ming more happy and ontented with 
every trip. And how glorious it was. of a 
fine morning, to move swiftly along through 
the country to the music of the song birds 
and the gentle click of the cyclometer as mile 
after mile was reconlcd. It was that way two 
seasons anii a part of the third. Then came 
the beginning of the end of mv career— the 
beginning of Jack's downfall. 

Of course, it was a woman. They're al- 
ways at the bottcmi of the misfortuncsof men 
and wheels. 

1 well remember the first time I ever saw 
her. ,\ slender, dark eyed, wraith-like little 
creature — not beautiful, but one to whom al- 
most any man mipht readilv lose his heart, 
o iiirti. nun ui ^seaKueas were m njnit 

I was standing out in front of the post- 
office while Jack mailed a letter, when she and 
a companion passed by. 

_ "Jack must be inside." said the companion, 
"there's his bicycle. They are inseparable. 
He is so fond of wheeling that he neglects all 
of his social duties. He is 'wedded to his 

exercise' in fact, and we poor mortals have 
to do without him." 

They paused for a moment and She remark- 

"I have heard he is something of a woman 
hater. K it that, or is he just indifferent?" 

"Just indifTerent. He's a charmmg fellow, 
but no one seems able to make anv inipres 
>ion upon him." 

There was n.. reply, but She smilttl— a 


e me trem1)lc a lit- 

hat Sn^ 


. ' but 

and ai- 

queer Jittie smile 
tie for J.ick's safety. 

It wa- licit long after that 
riding a wheel — a very fair la k " 
of course not -,. well made as mysel 
ways getting out .»f order, but that 
ahead of my story. 

S. 'uieliow it happened — no. n >eemed :» 
happen, but in reality it was dc>igned— that 
she was nearly always bound in tile -ame di- 
rection Jack and 1 were going. Of course we 
had to slf)w up to keep their pace, and that 
was annoying. Jack gave her no encourage- 
ment, at first, to accomi)any us and when she 
turned a ce.rner he always kept straight on 
antl seemed relieved. That is. at first. After 
a little while Jack got to turning the same 
corner. Then he got to dismounting at her 
gate. Then he got to taking her out for 
short country trips — slow ones over the best 
roads, so a.s to not overtax her strength, 

.Nnd it was then that her wheel commenced 
getting out of order. .\ nut would come lose, 
or the cham would get out oi orditf* or a 
cord of the skirt guard wotild break, or the 
handle bars would twist crosswise, or — bu: 
why detad them all? Everyone knows the 
variety of things that can go wrong witH 
a bicycle when its owner wants it to be out 
of order, so as to make a man help to fix 
it. Jack was succumbing by easy stages, but 
his conqiu'st wa- ccrrain. 

The climax came when we least expected 
it. It was toward the close of the riding sea- 
son and we had just started on one of our 
old-time conntry spins. The day was an ideal 
autumn one and N'ature was in all the glory 
01 j>ainted lea%*es and hazy atmosphere. The 
cyclometer was clicking inore rapidly than it 
had done for a long time and I was a$ happy 
as ;n the oltlesi days, before She sobered my 

Suddenly, when about three miles out. 
Jack slowed up almost with a jerk. I was 
amazed for I saw no danger ahead. But over 
at the side of the road lay Her wheel, some- 
what damaged. .And over by the fence, in 
the half-frosty grass She sat. 'crying. 

J.'ick was at her side in an instant, eager, 
anxious to know what has happened It was 
socm explained. Some loose stones in the 
road, a slip of the wheel, a fall, a sprained 
ankle, helplessness. Of course Jack insisted 
she couldn't slay there—she must go to the 
nearest farm house, half a mile away, where 
he would i^t a conveyance and take hMf 

But she could not walk, so she said. Pot a 
moment Jack was puzzled— -then he brighien- 
mi as if a happy thought had come. He would 
put her on my saddle sidewise. and she could 
balance herself on his shoulders, while he 
pushed me to the farm house. She liked the 
idea — too well. I thought. He carried her 
over to where I was lying, and while he lift- 










ed me up. she stood on one foot and rested 
her hand on his arm He lifted her tenderly 
to my saddle and as we moved slowly along 
they whispered to ea<di other a good deal. 1 
heard some of it. but erf «iurse i am not go- 
ing to repeat it, lor I learned discretion while 
I was Master Jack's property. 

-Ml this was almost at the close of last sea- 
son. There were no more country trips, but 
we went every day to her hou^e and I was 
left standing f»utside a long time each day, 
while Master Jack was inside Then the 
weather got bad and I was put away for the 

This spring when I was brought out. every- 
thing was strange. 1 was in a new house and 
everything was fresh and the odor of new 
furniture was apparent. She was there — She 
and Jack — but no one else. They seemed very 
happy, but somehow I didn't feel comfort- 
able. I felt that something disagreeable was 
to happen soon. It didn't for awhile, though. 
I carried Jack about pretty much as before 
and in the evenings we all went out together 
(She irad a iWw wheel) and hid some delight 
ful runs. 

But one mornirtg in July, as Jack was oil- 
ing me and cleaning some mu«I off my frame. 
She remarked: 

"Jack. dear, don't y<^u think yf)U had bet- 
ter get a new wheel? That one is beginning 
to look sha!»by." 

, Jack rlidn't reply at once, but finally said 
he would think about it. The poor fellow. I 
believe, didn't want to part with me — me 
who had given him health and amusement 
and happiness but then — "when a w«nan 
wills •• 

The end was not long coming. There were 
several nterviews with the dealer. His new 
wheels we/e carefully examined and re-ex- 
amined and they were a week making the 
trade. But one morning I brought Jack 
down town as usual and we went to the 
store. There was some more talk and then 
an exchange of money. Jack walked out with 
a new wheel — one. I am sure, that will never 
be as good a« I have been— and I was «;hfwrf 

plebinn breakdowns. I don't know how* long 
I rrmiinrd rhrr<', I was too heart-broken 
to take accniint of time. 

Two weeks ago T was brought out and 
cleaned and put up here with the other "sec- 
ond hand" goods, to be sold for what they 
can get for me. • 

Xow I've to'd von the who'c story, maybe 






I'll feel better after awhile for the telling. Ini*. 
please go away now. 1 — 1 want to be alone 
with my grief awhile. Even though 1 am 
"marked down." 1 could be just as good a 
wheel as ever, if Jack would only come back 
and get me, but— ^ut, 1 haven't the heart to 
carry anyone else. The thought makes me 
feel ohl and decrepit. 
That's all. sir, please go. now,

The first path wa> built aruund Lake liar- 





rict l)y the park conini!>s;oiurs out of the 
park funds, hut most of the others were con- 
structed with money raised through subscrip- 
tions to the path fund secured from the bi- 
cycle dealers and merchants by the Cycle 
Path Association, and by funds rai^e<l from 
the sale of path tag's. A nnm!)er of path> — ■ 
notably the fifteen mile path to Minnetonka 
lake — have been made by tin- county commi>- 
sionors. who now have chargr of the con- 
struction and maintenance of cycle paths un- 
der authority conferre<l by a law whose pas- 
sage was secured by the work of the enthu 
siastic Minneapolis wheelmen. The many 
cd)stacles surmounted by the cyclists during 
their campaign for thi> remarkable system of 
city and suburban paths had better not l>c 
recited, lest they disconrage wheelmen else- 
where from undertaking similar work; but 
><ufticc it to say that victory after victory has 
been won and now opposition has almost en- 
tirely ceased. The latest success has been the 
passage through the >tate legislature nf a bill 
providing f«ir the collection of a licen>e fee 
from every bicycle n ler in Minneapolis who 
uses the paths ami for the arrest and fining 
of anyone caught riding on them without a 
cycle path tag attached to hi- m.ichmc. 

0>m|>lete as the system appears to l>e» the 
good wi>rk has not ceased by any means, and 
many more miles of paths arc proiected for 
this and coming year-.. Effort wa-. concen- 
trated very largely last .season on the new 
path from Minneapolis through Bloom ingt on 
to Shakopee, a distance of thirteen mites. Un- 
der the skillful direction and energetic per- 
sonal attention of C. IT. \'anilerho<>f, presi- 
de4it of the Minneapolis Cycle Path .'\ssocia 
tion, a very excellent path was built from 
Minntiapolis to the Bloomington bridge, on 
which work the authorities of Hennepin coun- 
ty expended $l.r»0o. This year the path was 
extended from l^loomington t' .Shakopee. 
Twin City wheelmen, headed by Messrs. Van- 
derhoof and I'aul Gyllstrom. chairman of the 
road records committee of the Century Road 
Club, took great interest in getting the path 
C()m|)leted, as the run is the most scenic and 
uniformly delightful one out of the city: and 
thev promise that it will be the most popular 
of all. 

Writing to the author of this article re- 
garding the Minneapolis paths in general 
and the Shakupee path in particular, Mr. 
Gyllstrom says: 

*AVe are going to have a great wheeling 
year ui Minnaipolis. The city is now fairly 
honey combed with cycle paths, and the au- 
thorities are keeping the other streets in ex- 
cellent condition. We are *the whole thing' 
here now and no mistake. Aside from what 
the city atithor.tu > do. the county Cinnmis- 
sioners are doing the right thing. The com- 
missioners, whi> built the Minnetonka path, 
built another twelve miles >>i c«>untry path 
last year, which is part of the Shakopee path. 
This is going tt> be the popular run this year. 
The Minnetonka run is not in it' with thl!«. 
Just ihineen miles \>ut \T\nn Mmneiiali.i creek 
the Hennepin ciiunty line is reached m the 
Minnesota bottoms. The new cycle path 
goes the entire distance, through a country 
that is rolling but with no hills. We made a 
run over it late last fall, and it was the next 
thing to flying. It was the most exhilarating 
evening I ever put in.*' 

The natural scenic beauties in and around 
Minneapolis and St. Paul add vastly to the 
charms of the cycle paths there. Those sklrt- 
mg the various small lakes within the city 
are most interesting, while the longer ones to 
Minnetonka and White Bear lake arc de- 
cidedly popular because of the lonir ride 
through country districts and the summer re- 
sort attractions at their ends. The two most 
<lelightful of the older paths are the that 
winds in and out among the great o-aks along 
the east bank of the Mississipi)i. who-e wat- 
ers dance along 2ou feet below, and tiie me- 
andering path a'ong Minnehaha creek fr(»m 
Lake Harriet to the laughing falls made 
famous by Longfellow. 

Tile Hennepin county commi.->soners will 
build a path to ChampJin this year, and the 
Anoka people will continue it on to Elk Riv- 
er, a distance of twelve miles. This will be 
a good start on a continuous path to St. 
Cloud and possibly Little Falls, and after that 
It IS hard to tcH where it will end. a> there 
are no limitations. This streak of enthusi- 
asm in Anoka will mean a great deal to the 
western part ..f the cotliltv and .adjacent dis- 

It is proper in connection herewith to give 
all credit for the acc<»mpanying m.ip to 
Chairman Cliarles H. Xanderlj'oof. of tlu .As- 
sociated Wheelmen's Conimittce. who coin- 
pded it, and to the Haynes Cycle Cmpanv. 
of Minneapolis, which |>nblished it for distri- 
bution in neat f<iltler form, ^nvenient for 
carrying in the pocket.

When we >tarted last spring fur Europe. 
with the object of making an extended trip 
through Hollaml, Belgium, Switzerland. 
France and Germany, it was suggested that a 
detailed account of our experiences might 
prove interesting to the members of the 

Our party consisted of four, all young men 
from Grand Rapids, none of us blessed with 
wealth, and therefore compelled by necessity 
to travel as cheaply as \vc could, consistent 
with comfort. 

Last winter I spent much tune in looking 
up routes and hotels and gathering other 
useful information, as we intended U' make 
the trip witli"Ui guides, depentling solely upon 
our uwn resources. Everyone in the party 
spoke English and Dutch; Dr. A. Van Kam- 
mcn spoke some German and French, and I 
managed to get along with French and Ger- 
man sui'ticienily for traveling purposes. 

When we were ready to start we had our 
conjpletc route laid out and were as well pre- 
pared as could be expected. 

I then estimated the total cost of our trip 
at $L*o'> per person. Thi^ included a first- 
class railway ticket to and from Xew York, 
third class ticket to Rotterdam and '^ccond- 
class return to New York on the Holland- 
American line. It also provided for the vis- 
iting of the many palaces, churches, concerts, 
museums and other points of interest on our 

M.iny of my friends and .aci|uaintanccs said 
that it would be impossible to make a three 
months' trip for that anmunt. basing their 
opinions on the figures given by the different 
guide books and touring agencies. But they 
did not consider that these touring panics arc 
conducted by leaders who make this tluir 
business. That these conductors or guides 
are in this business for mere philanihrt»py'> 
sake is extremely doubtful. In any event. I 
think that their patrons are expected to pay 
them for the time expended in their behalf. 
However this may be. as an encourage- 
ment to the great class f>f cyclists who are 
anxious to make the grand tr»ur — hut are de- 
terred by the great expense said to be con- 
nected with it— I am glad to say that the 
cost of our trip has not exceeded my orig- 
inal estimate, and that, if necessary, the cost 
of a three months' trip to Europe need not 
exceed |225. 

Our knowledge of the languages, th^.ugh 
not indispensable, pruned to be of great vVur 
When 1W^ www in Switzerland %%w tut; iartc 
young men from Pittsburg. In the cottr^e 
of our conversation we lcar\ird that none nf 
them could speak a word of any language ex- 
cept English. On comparing notes we found 
that thev had been paying twice as much as 
we had paid for the same things. 

To the European merchant and landlord 
the American tourist is a nabob coming to 

Europe with the sole object of spending his 
accumulated wealth. This is very pleasing 
to our national pride, but rather disastrous 
to one's constantly contract itig currency. We 
soon adopted the plan of asking the price <d 
everything beforehand. When engaging a 
room, or ordering a meal we always insisteil 
on being told the price, everything includnl. 
In many case4 mine host would pr( pare our 
dinner and put it on the taWe without giving 
us the informaticm asked for. Only on our 
refusal to eat unless we were first told the 
price would he haul out a writing and 
pencil. Then, wnh the assistance of his wife 
and other membws of the family, he would 
commence a series of intricate calculations, 
the final result of which was the price of what 
we had ordered. 

Occasionally we would tunit thi> precaution 
and ask for tiur bill after we had finished eat- 
ing, but we invariably fiiund the price to l)e 
about twice as much as when we askc<l the 
price first and ate afterwards 

The prospective Eurcjpean tourist slionld 
join the League of .American Wheelmen, ii 
not yet a member. This will entitle him to a 
membership car<l in the Cyclists' Touring 
Club of England, by paying to cents extra. 
This card can be obtained from the secretary 
of the League of American Wheelmen. On 
receiving it. send it to J. R. Shipton, secre- 
taty oi tile C- T C. 17 Victoria street, West- 
minster. London, S. W. Inclose a c«ipy of 
your photo and K cents to have it reduced to 
the proper size. In about three weeks you 
will receive back your ticket, pr(»perly indors- 
ed, stamped with the seal of the club, and with 
your phot(> pasted on. 

This ticket will allow you to pass your wheel 
free into all European ctniniries; entitles you 
to all the privileges of the C. T. C ; is inval- 
uable as a means to identify yourself, and is 
of great value in many other cases. From 
the C, T. C. you can purchase mai^s and route 
books at special prices With the assistance 
of the route books you can carefully plan your 
route and prepare a complete itinerary, giving 
all the stations through which vou expect to 
pass and the distance b.tween them. < xpress- 
ed in kilometres. |-me cycling maps can be 
bf.ught in all the book stores in Europe, and 
the best plan is to buy them as you no along. 
If you speak the languages you can. if so 
disposed, travel without any maps, providing 
%'ou have the itinerary of your route. All you 
have to do is to ask a native cyclist to point

teous and obliging, invariably .nnxiou- to make 
things pleasant for us. Oftentimes a wheel- 
man would ride along with us for a distance 
in order to show us the right road. Not, 
however, until they knew that we were not

Money in the Farmer's Pocket 

Thi* txpcrt^ estimate that the average 
wagon haul frum lann lo point uf shipment 
is from o.l> t^ ti.U iuiU>. and the c-ist })cr 
wagon h»ad is yd cctit.s sn the nurthern and 
eastern states. In the prairie and sonthcrn 
states the average haul '^.^ iii:le>. aiul the ci>>t 
p^ wagon load i> ^-."rl. Tlie averagv eo^i 
of hauling farm products tram the iarni> * • 
the point of shipmeiu over the entire Uuiie«l 
States is 25 cents per ton per nii!e. The rail- 
roads charge le>-> than half a e'ent a mile \>n 
hauling the->e products to market, or about 
one-fifth it costs the farmers themselvc'^. 
T^iesc figures alone show how shortsighteil :- 
the policy which makes the farmers of the 
country indilTercnit to the subject of g.>od 
roads. The amount >ave<l by the improve- 
ment of the country r«>ads would more than 
re^y the c^-t and would he money in the 
farmers' pocktst besides. Considerations of 
self-interest should lead to the prompt bet- 
terment of every public highway in the slate.

It has been demon»trated tha,t the U5 cents 
a t«>n that it costs to transport freight on the 
ordniary country road will carry the same 
freight 4«m> miU-N -n a railroad and 1,<MH> miles 
«)n water. The c.i-t .>f carrying freight «>n 
the country roads should certainly be rcduc- 
eil. as it is prohibitive of farming operations 
at a certain distance from shipping points.

Productive 0/ Prosperity 

Clearly there is nothing more calculated to 
lift the burden > >>U a dnintry and place it in a ai pr.»>pcnty than gooil roails. 
Madison cv»unty would ti^day be where it 
was twenty years ago had it not been for rhe 
wonderful inijietus given our prosperity by 
good ru kU, a shi>rt time after the free pikes 
%vere eonstrncted the pei>ple began to look 
better, to h.i\e more pnde even in personal 
appearance. The contrast between a smooth 
pike, a ileep ditch and a rickety fence was s > 
great that the diiche- were tilled, the fences 
Straightened and .1 Keener il air of improve- 
ment brought about, ciuiniry residences an^l 
even J»arns were pamieii. Xew veiiicies ap- 
peared, the people lived better and became 
more in .sympathy with progress, a better 
feeling sprung up between the country and 
city. We have >een instances when four mules 
hauled a wagon containing two bales of cot- 
ton to the pike and the wagon was then 
loaded uj) with six bales and two mules haul- 

id them easily to town. This was lifting a 
hea\y tax i>\\ the -.iinuiilir^ of ilu- penple, — 
Birmingham, .\ia.. Xcw^. 

Is All Important 

The bill now heiore the legislature, .luiiior- 
izing ounties to appropriate money for good 
roads, should not only pass, but the appro- 
priations should be very Ubeml. If there is 
any one thing in which the country districts, 
ami the ctties of the state .ne mutually inter- 
ested in it is good roads.— JanesvillJ. \\ is., 

Best Flmta^mg Plan 

The best plan of linanoing highway im 
provcment. l>ecause -i iiHures the quickest 
results, is the creatutn ui a state debt for the 
estab'i-hment .»f the necessary fund. Tiiis 
W«$ prop.. .1,1 at the legislatisr .r->;..n just 
ended, but. apparently, the time a.i> not ripe 
even for consideratiiin thereof. It is not. 
however, improbable that this plan will be 
adopted. i*<r : . pretty clear that the wi>hes 
of the people are mn consulted in the pres- 
ent policy of dealing out state aid for ingh- 
w.iv improvement in dribblets. The popular 
tle>ire for good roads is great .md steadily in- 
creasing, and as the state is committed to 
the policy of aiding the work of road reform, 
it « night to hasten progress insteail of retard- 
mg it.— Binghamton. X. V.. Lea.ler. 

The Interests of All 

.Nutomobiles and bicycle> are demanding 
go.»d roails. The farmers and taxpayers will 
be on the alert and work for the equalization 
of taxes, that the auto man and cyclist al! 
bear their share, .X. the population' increases

An Opportunity for the Pulpit 

The clergy of the Unitetl States in this 
rwentioth century w..uld confer a benefit up- 
on the people if they would imitate the ex- 
ample oi those BHtivh ciergynien of earlier 
days. It would be nnmces-^ary f.»r them, of 
course. \o turn their own haiuU to rhe l»n:;<l- 
ing at riKids. or evm to actually engage in 
the supervision oi the w .rk. Tlie technical 
part could be be-tter done by tlio>c who are 
expert m it. But the ciergy cnild very well 
agree upon a day. when ""might be called 
"Gooil Roads Day." and on whicli they ingiu 
impress ui>on their c<«f'gregat;ons the exjjc- 
diency of their joining, all <»: them, with a 
will in the movement for g tod roads. Such 
ftn encouragement from the pulpit in - very 
church in the country would give the move- 



ment an impetn> that would >riid it '>n the 
way to succe>-.. h is not a >uhiecl. allie;- ;' 
is more of a!.ir than of a sacred, nature. 
that is beneath the attention of the clergy, 
lor it IS lUie of the utini»>t c.tnse<|uence t »

so, It deserves the warmest enconragement 
from the pulpit, and the churches w^nihl he

from religious services in the rural districts

A Cry for Haste 

By all means let us have good roads. We 
trust that the gentlemen ^argc^ with tlie 
duty of instructing the public in the art (m 
it can be terrocd an art) mi ^nstrocting .inl 
maintaining country highways will no 
time in getting to work and that a full meas- 
ure oi ^ucce-s will crown their patriotic ef- 
forts — ^SAirevej). ►rt. La., Times. 

Loulsana's Great Need 

Good roads would appear to be almost a 
means of grace. The National Good R-»ails 
AssMtiation is a movement in the direct: <n 
of fccuring better highways by educating the 
people in the best meth«>ds 01 constructing 
and maintaining them. No state needs go<jd 
roads more than Louisiana. <Twing to the 
heavy rainfall and the n.itnre ..f the I.intl. 
which makes drainage problem- ninrc diili- 
cult than elsewhere. Still if rep.»rt> relating 
ti> the pres nt movement are to he relief! 
upon. Texai and <»thir >t;rt«s may well look 
10 this old mother state for an example along 
this line which they will do well to follow. — 
Delias, Tex.. News. 

Should be Paid In Cash 

Practical road men have given this sub- 
ject cousuUrable attention and they univer- 
sally as>ert that the only remedy Is to change 
the road law- - • .i> t 1 require every man to 
pay his road tax in m^iey, — Trenfoii, Mo., 

More Liberal This Time 

The New York legislature has granted a 
very liberal appropriation for g^Hwl roads, in- 
creasing the amount from ^Jm.imiu to$42'MM»o.

this purpose, and $lmHMN> the year befitre. —

Had Roads Are the Worst Tax 

Bad roads are far and away the heaviest 
i.ix which the Louisiana farmer has to pav. 
and in many instances this tax i> >o heavy as 
to amount almost to confiscation, t )i course 
tile larmer does not sw the tax gatherer 
coming around and extorting a tribute from 
him. Imt when a man ha> to pay live dollar.* 
for h.iuling a load to market which, with 
good roads could be hauled %viih pr<»fit for 
on« dollar, the tax ought to be apparent to 
him. Moreover, it is tlie nM,t unprofitable 
tax which man e%'er had to p.iy, liccause he 
really pays a tax, wot for any good purpose. 
but to cnjiiy the privilc^ of struggling along 
over boggy rwds and having the produce 
eat< n up by the unnecessary expense of get- 
ting it to market. Twenty per cent of the 
amount he pay- for the privilege of Iwving 
bad roads would give him gocS roads and 
save iM him many dollars annually. It is a»- 
toni>hing thai merchants, farmers, railroads 
and everybody else seem to ha%e failed lo ap- 
preciate this fact and remedy it long ago. —

should come along with a device by which 
one could cook his dinner in the boiler. Cook 
your dinner while you ride wouldn't be a 
half-bad advertising cry. 

A straight line is the shortest distance be- 
tween two points. Wisdom >p«.ii»l^ ;i single 
stamp. There is no good reason why mem- 
bers should send renewals t<> their division 
officers and put upon those dtticers the bur- 
den of sending the >ame to hemhiuartcrs. 
There is an impression that renewals must 
be made through the secretary-treasurer. 
This is not the case. The S.-T.'s are oblig- 
ing and forward all renewals rtccivcd. Now 
a member can crack his €gg just as he 
pleases but the shortest distance is across 
lots and the fewer hands to handle the less 
delay tlu-rc will l)e. 

The olTicial returns show that only thfe* 
bicvcle manufacturers have taken space at 
the' Pan-American Exposition. It was not 
alwavs thus. Our mind runs back to the 
display made in the Transportation Building 
at Chicago. There were wheels to be seen. 
Are we now satisfied with the cycle show 
under our own fig tree? 

The Connecticut legislature seems to have 
come to an agreement over tlie lamp law, 
A new one has been reported. It ditTer.s 
from the act of 1H0!> in that courts are given 
power to remit fines if it be shown that the 
light <»t the culprit had bctn extinguished 1>y 
accident. It also permits lamplcss wheelmen 
and drivers to so proceed at a pace of six 
miles per hour, provided an audible signal 
be made every 501) feel. This seems to be 
common sen*lcal. .^ light is tlw only thing 
that ti bicycle can strike without injury t^ 
the rider — unless it be a good pace. 

A New York physician in *n automobile 
knocked down and rendered insensible an old 
man riding a bicycle. The physician found 
the victim's home address in his pocket, put 
him in his automc^nle. hufied him to his 
family, and so..n had him on the way t>* tull 
recovery. Now if we could but find some 
one to play the Jew and the Levite and pass 
by on the other side the second drama of 
Gi>f>d Satn.iritan wou'd be complete. 

The Lemgue of Americmn Wheel mem 

Is an or^nliatlon to promote the general In- 
terests* of evellnifi to aset-rtain. defend and pro- 
test the rtKht!* of wheelmen; and to seeurt* hn« 
provem«ni In tlu condition of the public road.* 
and highwav.s by iiromotlnK Jn the public mind 
m Ben^e of ihe utility, p.iural ttonomy. and 
deslrabllliy of hlRh-class roads, and per^uodlng 
leRlslators to miike lnw«s and provide money to 
create better hiphwavM We have IntUienci-d, al- 
ready, verv much ieKi.«latlon, but our work !• 
no more than beRun. W.- need the Inrtuenee ami 
the eontrll>utlon of every wheelman to further 
this work. 

%Ve protect our rights and promote our In- 
terests by InfluencliiK IfRlslatlon favorable to 
wheelmen, antl by oppo^lnir the same If preju- 
dicial to our %veal. 

In brief. wi> week bv eo-operatl%e endeavor to 
»#cure results not otherwise obtainable. 

We Invite every man of ROod character who 
rides a wheel to join us in prosecuting the good 
Work we have undertaken. 

Kverv fuU-pnld memb^T Is entitled to the 
oi. cial' organ, which \^ pttbllshed monthly. 

Bv co-ooer.atlve endeavor, we publish road 
books. mar»s, hand books, etc. The work of col- 
lecting and compiling Is done by our Eealou* 
members and thus we do the work at small ex- 
pense and give our members the benefit. 

Our Hotel ?y.stem gives to members a dis- 
count at hotels when traveling. 

Our Consul system provides a man in every 
town and city whose duty it is to assist touring 
membcr.s. uur spirit of fraternity unites wheel- 
men in a common brotheriiood. 

Our sy.«tem of Repair Shop.s secures repairs 
to League members at reduced rales. 

Our agitation and work in the legislature^ 
of diiierent staie,'^ has given to wheelmen the 
free carriage uf \vli««l.< tis baggage on the rail- 
roads. Our work in iliis direction is incom- 
plete. We have done much, but much remains. 

MfnilH'rshij* in the l... A. W. ♦-nlitles one to 
receive a ticket of membership in the Cyclists' 
Touring Club of Great Britain. The C. T. C. 
lias a very complete system of hotels, consuls, 
repair .«hoi»i5, etc.. in Great Britain and on the 
Continent, atid the use of these at reduced 
rates is at the command of ticket hold»-rs. 
Holders of the C. T. C. tickets can obtain free 
enii of their cycles Into France, Germany, 
and other cunttnt'tital countries, but If they 
intend visiting Belgium. Switzerland. Italy or 
Austria, it Is recommt-ncb-d that they become 
memb»rs «,. the C. T. i\ The him-r couiuries 
require that the ticket must contain phoio- 
gr.aph of the holder ami stamp of the

may take w^heels Into Canada, for a period not 
to exceed three months, without a dep«»!»lt of

guarantees the n-turn of ti.e wheel t«i .Am'-riea

Antn riiihs to Fifiht for CiMtd Kimtln 

An an ! n in ..f bitter times to conic 
may be ii.tind in liie recent decision of the 
Autfun.d.ih rin!) of America to secure State 
and fedef il legislation in the interest of good 
roads. I)iiritip its meeting in New York City, 
on July 17. this pr»werfnl and influential or- 
ganization disen-ed the aft'diation of the va- 
rious atitomo!)ile clubs all over the country to 
unite in a gc neral ronvcntirin, where delegates 
frf>m each club may di.scuss the issue, and 
forniidatr sf.nie definite plan of procedure 
with regard t.. the ?,p«;t way to tackle the legal 
end of the meivement. 

If the desired results could be brought 
about, it woidd be stire to attract the attention 
of the r- ••nnlry. and in a large measure 

to 111:1 hat natir.nal interest in the good

slaii<l,ir<l of roml itnprdvcment. The Post Of- 
fice I)< ji.irtnK'tit has so decided. And very 
wisily, it st't fns. The department finds that 
fMi. many rural free delivery routes were in- 
ternipti<l la^t spring l.iy the iini)assable condi- 
tirifi of the ((luntry roads to warrant a con- 
timitfl fisc (Ulnery in the future, unless the 
tlistiii t- m fpn -tion agree to keep the roa<l> 
in fairly j^nod shape.

The rircU'r of the department i*- ineatit to appl\ 

and considering that this is in their own inter- 
cut in fnnre ways than one. they nught to be 
able to do that much. 

(^ityfyiiii^ tbv Country 

Cityfying the country by naming the roads 
and numliering the houses is a (k'\ i h>fiment 
of the good roads movement that bids fair to 
become very popular in many of our most im- 
portant rural districts. Everything ^eem^ to 
cuml»inc toward a eiiterprisf along 
ihtise jiius. and many new^p.-ipirs have taken

report t.t the ticpartment the routes that arc 
interrupted through the laxity and neglect of 
tile U»cal rt>ad i)oards. and such routes will be 
stricken off the rural free deltvery list 
at once. The department seems to be of the 
f»pini«u» that wherever the pc«»ple arc so in 
different to the advatunccs to the free cleliverv 
service that they cannot be dcpetuled upon to 
keep tlic roads passable for the carriers, the 
•'xperiment must necessarily be considered a 
failure. Hereafter the farmers will have to 
keep the roads clear to insurp a free delivery.

I'liotd by 

crn bank of the lower Hudson. Just opposite 
Sing Sing, near Rockland Lake, is the place 
picked by him as an ideal spot for the estab- 
lishment of a Slate quarry to be worked by 
the prisoners. The place is close by the 
prison, easy lo reach, and the cost of main- 
tenance of the prison crews tin re would be no 
more than in the cells. The objections which 
are generally made to prisoners being em- 
ployed on the public roads would hardly apply 
to their emplovment in ihp niiarrv anH »» »l^» 
same time their work would be profitable to 
the State. It is K?r. Bond's idea to have 
the road material thus prepared in the quarry 
forwarded to all pans of the State and sold 
to the county commissioners engaged in the 
lottl road building. Tbt mm cbosen for tht

Homl Making by tbv ytile

opposition than formerly, and the quality of

Club, of Mabank, Tex., appointrd a com 
mission to look into the matter of the club's 
taking up tlic advocacy of the good roads 
movement as a radical issue. 

The Ohio automobile owners must here- 
aiter be counted among those interested in 
road improvement. They are planning for the 
building of a boulevard from one end of the 
State to the other, touching the larger towns 
and cities.

$J,3 10.045. nnd it derives about $9,000 annually 
from the road taxes, the tax being 4 mills, antl 
it has no indebtedness.

Porter county, in the State of Indiana, is 
rapidly pushing to the front in the matter of 
road improvement. The county has already 
built 59 miles of i-ravel and macadam roads. 
and there are now 46 miles under con-siinc- 
tion, making a total mileage of 105 of up lo- 
date roads. The total cost of this work was 
$341,628. Center township, in the same State, 
has built 30 miles, at a cost of $111,000; Cnion 
has completed 11 miks, costing $_»<; 
BtH.uf lias 12 miles on the hands of the con- 
tractors to cost $41.^40; Westchester has ex- 
pended $59,420 on 18 miles: in Portage, the 
contract has been let for 19 niiU-, for $51,968. 
and Liberty has voted ove.- 6 miles at an esti- 
mated cost of fajtOOO. 

Good Hit.'tits Traill on the Mow 

The genuine enthusiasm with which the 
good roads train is being welcomed through- 
out the ."^onth and Central Wet shows that the 
enterprise is one amounting to a necessity to 
the localities, while it imist always remain a 
si.nrce of gratification to the promoters. The 
methi»d of the National Gooil Roads Asso- 
ciation is to ascertain in advance a city -uited 
to the holding of a good roads convention. 
The citizens of the place are then prcvaiictl 

llfiriii to fnicA "i f#»w HiinHfpd dnllai"* *r% •»cc?e> 

in defraying the expenses of building upward 
of a mile of street or roadway, and the 
train makes a stop long enough to accom- 
plish the work. Those interested in the im- 
provement of the local roads hold a con- 
vention, organize a district association, and 


view the actual working of the machinery.

A sidcliill gives a better road than a creek 
bott.iin (iMg. 4.) It is always better drained 
and generally lias a more solid foundation. 

The matter of crossing streams should re- 
ceive the most careful study. Bridges are 
costly to build and exiunsis-- t.. maintain. 
The writer recalls a mountain road that orig- 
inally rrn^ >(d the same stream sixteen times 
in the first two niihs. This number has been 
reduced from time to time, until now only 
two crossings remain. 

Very steep si<hhill slopes and hard rock 
increase the cost nf road-building. It is often 
possible by study t<> avoid them to a greater 
or less extent. It was a favorite expression 
with a very successful man that "Nothing pays 
like fir-t cost in road-building." meaning that 
monry >■ pt-nded in intelligent study nf a lo- 
cntiun was the most economical item <if all 
the Cfi'^t. Most prolilems in road location that 
at first seem iinpossibh- nf practical solution 
can be solved. Thousands of miles of moun- 
tain railroad h.ave been replaced at enormous 
cost because of mistakes in original location, 
which more intelligent study would have 
avoided. The same principle applies in road- 

In level regions we drain roads to protect 
their fotjndatinns: in the fn.Mmtains we drain 
them principally to protect their surface. 
Water naturally runs ofT froni a slope, and in 
doing so it must always leave more or less 
effecl. I'.viry mountain road must run 
through a v.iHey or along a hillside. If in a 
valley, the surface should have a crown of 
at least 6 inches, with gutters and ditches atid 
drains, just as in properly constructed roads 
in a level ngitni. Tn mountain roads, on hilU 
sides, on the other hand, a %'ery ditTerent 
practice tntist !»,• ndopted. The outside of the 
road nnisi Ik the highest, with the view nf 
conducting the water as quickly as pnssihle 
toward the inside bank, whi 1 r t s!i,miU1 find 
a gutter to carry it to the nearest drain. This 
prevents the water from sp-lling over and 
%vashing away the outside bank, and also has 
a tendency to keep it from running down in 
the ruts and enlarging them There is a vital 
reason for keeping the outside of the road on 
hillside grades higher than the inside Tliere 
If always a tendency (or the wheels of a 
hea%-ily loaded wagon to slew tnw.ird th# 
lo%ver side. This beconies very serious when 
the road '^urfac*' is slippery, and terrible ac 
cuicnts have resulted Rain nr melting snow 
always wears down some of the material 
from rtir inside bunk. If the r^id frurface 

slopes outward, this debris follows the drain- 
age across the road, continually increasing 
the slope, sometimes very rapidly in cold 
weather: hence, the roadbed, for the pmtec- 
tion both of the bed and the traffic, should 
lie constructed and maintained with ;in in- 
ward slope of at least one-half inch to the 
foot. The insifk' gutter should empty into 
drains crossing the roadbed diagonally at 
suitable intervals, determined by the amount 
of drainage. 


The importance of batter in mountain road- 
building seems to be little understood, and 
c(»rrect practice is almost univt-rsally ignored. 
It is very common to see hillside grades cnn- 
sfr'icted as follnw-: Instiiir. .. i ihl.inu,'. with

We are going to create a sensation at the

train possible to secure to Buffalo in Septem- 
ber for the great exhibition when the conven- 
tion of the National Good Roads Association 
is to be held. It will carry all kinds of road-

chinery used on the public highways. We ex- 
pect considerable from the national conven- 
tion, and then will follow other trips like that 
we are on now» with convention following 
convention. We do not intend to stop until 
this country is a perfect network of roadways 
of which the ancient Romans would have been 
proud in the heyday of the City of the Seven 
Hills."— Interview with W. H. Moore, Prcs't 
National Good Roads Ass., New Orleans

Rainproof Rostds 

The substantial work being done in the 
present repair of country roads was evidenced 
during the heavy sturnis on the Fourth ot 
July. The rainfall was as heavy as is often ex- 
perienced, and if there was to be any road 
washing it would likely occur during such a 
storm. A trip to-day over ihe newly con 
structcd piece of Hotner road east ui the 
llunier hill road shows it to be in as good con- 
dition as the day alter it was finished building. 
This is due to the fact that scientific method* 
of road construction %vcrc observed in it* 
building, the road being carefully crowned, so 
that the rain as soon as it fell was drained otY 
before it had the c>|»pt«rtunity to wash or do 
any damage. 

It is this safiu- method of construction that 
i.s being observed in the repair of the Homer 
hill road, and that when completed will al> . 
make the repairs permanent. An instance ut 
the effectiveness of good crowning is found 
right here in Winema, where some of the ordi- 
nal > street repair undertaken in this manner 
.several years ago when Otis Abell was street 
coninii.ssiont r lia\e left the streets in good 
shape without ulhei work since being done, 
seinie of this work being in the Third ward. — 
Winona (Minn.) Henld. 

Necesaity of Romd Machiaety 

Road building in many sections of the 
country has navcr got bcyontl tlu ur imI wag- 
on and the farmer's shtnel In tiif-t States 
the farnur •'\vi>rk> i-nt'" liis r. .ul tas nn a dav 
that is ninst ci»n\ intent to liiniNtlt and when 
there is n.tiiiini; that can be done on the farm. 
He runs a scraper up and down the highways. 

throwing the dirt in mounds, hauls a few 
loads of gravel, scatters it about promiscuous- 
ly and the job is done for the year. It is this 
kind of "road building" which make many 
cr.untry highways impassable for a good por- 
tion of the year. 

In no department of mechanical industry 
has greater progress been made than in the 
perfection and manufacture of roadmaking 
machinery. The use of this machinery under 
the direction of experts reduces road building 
in any kind of soil to a very simple proposi- 
tion. A wider knowledge of modern road- 
making machinery among the agricultural 
classes would divest the problem of many ap- 
parent difiiculties in the minds of t.. 
whom Legislatures must look for their initia- 
tive in this matter. 

Modern steam power roadmaking machin- 
ery, combined with State aid under a State 
engineer of highways, furnishes the practical 
sohition of the good roads problem of this 
Ci>untry.-- Spokane (Wash.) Chronicle.

make—a mere theory ineap.ible of furthering the country's interests— had been applied 
to such a potent and essential i-sue as the improvement of our wretchedly madequate 
country re>ads. the .\mencan people would have had something to show for the time, the 
money, and the energy expended — a something, in fact, which would be sure to remain a 
permanent monument to the courage, patriotism, and good sense of the party taking up 
the canse of good roadt as a platform. What have we at a nation to show for our (rt« 
mlvcr wrangle, on the other hand ? Billy Bryan's jHCtttrt eriped in black, that's about ^ t

The fact that the Bicycle Tru-^t is promoting 
racnif.; <tn the wheel would sccttt to argue that 
the manauers think racing has done more 
lor the wheel than good roads have. We have 
not tmled any large-sized helping hand held

Mr. C. N. Jacks^n. well known in Englatid 

as the coach and treasurer of the Oxford Urn- 

statetncni in regard to the deterioration of 
British muscle. Mr. Jackson has had an ex- 
perience in Oxford athletics for almost forty 
years, and he is considered one of the leading 

authorities on college sports in the country, 
as well as being the adviser of the tmiversity 
team which is guiug to comf>ete in this coun- 
try. It would hardly be fair to c!a-- Mr Jack- 
son as a pessimist, and yet he seems to think 
that physically his race shows decadence. He 
says, on this point, the nniscles of this genera- 
tion are weaker than those of the last, and 
he basis this belief on the character of the 
injuries which athletes under his care have 
suflfered and which he thinks points to frailty 
of the muscles. He charges the bicycle and 
tram car with being to cjuite an extent respon- 
sible for this condition. The English athlete 
of the pre-^eiit day docs not walk nearly 
enough, and. as Mr. Jackson considers walk- 
ing one «if the best exerci«e>. he feels certain 
that it is a great mist.ikr to give up walking 
for the sake of l)icycling. He does not deny 
that cycling has been a boon to many, but it 
has its disadvantages, and though it develops 
the mu<cles of the letr. it ffoes nf»t add to the 
ability t** walk, and in Mr. Jackson's experi- 
ence with athletes it results in "sheer lazi- 

ni -^^ 

We ha%'e !•> aflmit that man is constitution- 
ally lazy We think we will have to go further 
and admit that .\merieans are more so than 
Fnu'li-hmen Englishmen and English girls 
have been good walkers for .centuries. Not «in 
the .American. We arc too lazy to walk. Our 
athletic* arc .lominatcd by mm of foreign 
birth. Walking is too much like hard work 
for us. Tn the bicycle the youth of America 
has foimd an cNrrci^e not akin to hard %vork. 
It i« exhilaratinir. rc-tful and altogether de- 
lightful. The old titne tricyele developed 
one's mu-s«-I, nitnh m«>rr than rlors the tri 
cycle. One liad fn w«>rk hard to push a htm 
dred potmd tricycle up a loug hill Tf we had 
continued with the tricyclr. Mr Jacksmi 
woiilij hn\c nothing to . , .fiTpir,in f»t We gave 
it up. because it was hard w«<rk. Many are 
giving up the btcyclc br, mse there i« more 
or less . f Uftrk in its prtipnlcjon Tlicre is no 
question I Hit that \valking is a splendid exer- 
cise, antf the best of it i- that every one 
can enioy it. Tf more people would take a 
gond brisk walk each day they would keep in 
decidedly better condition, but wc don't be- 
lieve that the lazy ones who give up bicycling 
will take up walking. i

Manifestly, the usefulness of automobiles, 
as of bicycles, depends largely upon the con- 
dition of the roads over which they are to 
be run. When the road is right, the possi- 
bilities of the machines are vastly increased. 
No one should underestimate the highly cred- 
itable results already achieved by the good 
roads workers in many parts of the country, 
and notably in New York State. The cause 
in which they are enlisted is one which de-

Jiw he et in Old Manila 


How many wheclincn have cvtr had the 
opportunity t>i taking a spin <>n tlio Luneta? 
Very few, I'll wager; yet there is no more 
pleasant way <»{ spending an evening awheel. 

Let us start frt»ni the old Santa Cruz dis- 
trict, and in a few minutes vvc have reached 
the busy ICscoJta the Broadway of Manila. 
It is a comparatively short thoroughfare, 
and not good wheeling, but the short 
time rc<iuircd to traverse it will repay you 
for yf>ur trouble, for it will show you life as 
it is in old Manila. 

The noise and Intstle of the strctt is con- 
fusing. Now we must adroitly dodge a car- 
romata (cab) coming toward u^ at fidl speed, 
and we must turn to the left. Next comes a 
government wation rattling over the cobble 
stones, and we arc (d)liL:ed to turn to the right, 
thus a per-on must alway- be on the alert to 
know wlutlur an American or a Filipino is 
handling the reins. 

As we pass the buihlinu serving as the I'. 
S. postolhce. the street becomes still more 
congested with trallic. and the narrow side- 

walks swarm with people of every nationality: 
American soldiers in uniiorm. blue or khaki; 
.Xineriean civilians Imislung their way 
through the throng in search of the al- 
mighty dollar; Fdipinos. men and women, 
shuffling along in their ann1e<< way: Chinese, 
Japanese. East Indianun. Kiis. satis and peo- 
ple from every part of the ' )rient and Occi- 
dent — truly a wonderful siuhi. and one to be 
seen in no other city in the world. 

Finally, as the s|iade> of evening are fall- 
ing, we turn to the Kit and cross the famous 
Bridge r.f Spam ( I'liente Fspagn.a). whicli 
srans the treacherous Pasig river. Here we 
t'; almost as much confusion as on the 
Escolta. Carromatas, dilesas and vehicles of 
e%cry description are being driven to and 
from the marts of trade, and larger nuftibcrs 
of natives than usual arc hurVying along, car- 
rying bags. Iiaskets and jars of produce, 
cither on their lua«ls, <»r suspended from 
bamboo poles borne on the shoulders of men. 

Just as wc reach the opposite end of the 
bridge, wc have a tine view of the "Wallcl

City," as the oldest jiart of Manila is called. 
I his was the e»riginal sction of the city. 
founded by Ltgaspi. the e.xplorer. in the early 
days of Sjianish ocenp.itieiu. 

.\nd right here bel'ore us is Manila's fash 
ionable driveway-— the Luneta! Now we 
can enjoy our spin. A hard, snmoth botile- 
vard is lietieath us. and as wc speed along 
on our "steeds of sttel" we feel the exhilar 
ating intluenee of the evening brec/e from 
Manila Bay. 

Now we can hear the inspiring notes of 
lively airs. playe<l bv s,»nie military band over 

at the eonct ri >tand^-f«»r nearly e\ery cven- 
mg tine oi tlu regimental bands giMs a C(»n 
1 1 ri of six Ml eight nundiers. Here we will 
<li-rnoinit for ;i lew ininntes in or<ler to more 
tliotouulily enjoy the niusic. The people are 
siiruniu; towards the players, and there is a 
KHat e..iitnsic.n of \\ic nation-. In the gliast- 
ly liglit of eltrine ares, it is diliieult to dis 
tinyuish l-'ilijiino fr«ini or Kussian 
troin |-.a-t In<lt.iniaii. 

Not i.'incying this c«infnsion, we make our 
way slowly back to the ontskirts of the

arm, telling the uld. uld story in many lan- 
guages—but in whauver dialect or language, 
it is always the same— yet ever new. Now 
and then, a smart young officer of the army 
strolls past with some dusky senorita cling- 
ing t.» his arm- but more often we find them 
enjoying a drive in a fine, new calesa. 

Again we mount our wheels and in a short 
time we have reached the end of the Luneta, 
and out in the bay we can sir the twinkling 
lights of many ships— battleships and tr.n.p 
transports and merchant crait of all nation s. 

But it gri»ws late and we mn-t return, so. 
having cnjoyetl our evening tn the fullest ex- 
tent, we pedal back to our hotel, and as we 
spin swiftly along. gay y«»ung scnoritas. 
inclined to flirt, called out i«» us: "Hasta 
nianana" ! 

And. so, nearly every evening nnc may find 
these scenes repeated with trifling variation s. 
in that great city across the racific ilie old 
Manila, over which n«»w pnnidly fl«»its the 
flag of our young republic. 

Gowl RoatI News from the South 
OMAHA, Neb.. August 17. (Siucial tf.r- 
rcspondence.)— Mr. R. W. Richardson, coun- 
sel for National (nunl Ass.uiation for 
this district, after an absence oi m.»nths 
in the South, returned from Chicago ycster- 

During bis absence frotn the city Mr. 
Richardson acc.mpanird the "Good R«»ads 
Train" from Chicago through Louisiana. 
Mississippi, Kentucky. Tennessee and IlHnois 
as one of the represititatives of the National 
Good Roads A-ssociation. «)f which he is 
counsel. He speaks in gl.nvitig terms of the 
South, and was nmch nni^risscd with the 
spirit oi enterprise which is becoming man- 
ifest in that part of the country. 

"The South is getting in line to be one 
of the best sections of the t/nion," said Mr. 
Richardson to a GOOD ROADS MAGA- 
ZINE representative. "I was surprised as 
well as extremely gratified to find that the 
solid, conservative business men have as a 
rule turned their thoughts from politics, and 
taken up the work of developing their States 
along industrial lines. Among this cla.«s of 
iwoplc I tVnuul that there was a general tend- 
ency to be fully saiistuil %vith the policies 
r.f the National Administration in business 
and political aflfairs. Mr. Bryan has no real 
following among the thoughtful men of the 
South. They \^ote the Democratic ticket 
solely on account of the race question, and 
have but little sympathy with the vagaries 

which have captured the Xaiinnal Democratic 
party in latter years, 

:\s a result of these conditions the South 
is looking forward in every direction to the 
1)» -1 there is in the country. As a phase of 
this new development the train of the Na- 
tional Good Roads \>..,ciation was welcomed 
wherever it stopped. 

Mr. Richardson will remain in (bnaha for 
a week, and will then return i.. Cliicauo.

Missouri cvpcrimcnts, covering a period of 
two wars, discovered that two conditions 
of the din roads in which there was any 
advantage in having narrow tired vehicles 
—namely, when soft (either muddy or very 
dusty) on the surface and hard under- 
neath, and when the run was deep and 
sticks, so that both sets of wheels cut 
deep ruts, and the mud adhered to the wheels. 
Say the Missouri authori ics: "It is unques- 
tumab'y true that when wc consider the en- 
tire tonnage freighted over any ordinary dirt 
road dt:ring t!-e year, the total atnount of 
work retiuirid would be very much less if 
the six-inch tires were used instead of the 
narrow tires now lu soguc.

portion of the road that is f. .niud from tho

be more solid than the portiun built out. It 
is consequently desiraltle on roads designed 
for very heavy traffic tluit all the wheels ..t

The following diagram and mathematical 
discussion are given to sli,.w the method by 
which the rcsuhs prt-enle<l in the table on 
page HX) were ubtamcd: 


In the above the insiile bank is calcnlatcd 

d AG AZi N E 

with a bailer uf 45 degrees (one to one;, 
and the outside with a batter of 40 degrees. 
The resuh-, of any oiln r depth of cut may 
be (pnckly obtained from the table by simple 
propiirtion. For instance, for a cut of 7 
net into the hank the total width of road- 
bed wetuid be -^t veu-cighths of the figures 
111 the table; for a cut of feel the total 
width wonid be nine eighths; for a cut of 10 
feet, ten-eighths, etc. 

Apidying this to a 25-degree slope, we 
find that a 10 fo..t cut into the bank gives 
a total width ,>f Hi 11; a cut of «> ftit gives 
17.20; one «tf 7 f(ti. 1.3. .'vS; one of o feet. 1147. 
and one of 4 feet. 7.64. 

Amounts of inaterial which must be ex- 
cavated increa>e or decrease as the squares 
of the depth. To Ulusirate: For a cut of 7 
feet, the amount of exca\;ition would be 49-64 
of the amottnt given m the table: for a cut of 
6 feet. .^'>-<'4: for a cut <>f 5 feet, 25-64; and for 
a cut of 4 feet. 16 (14 

The following tables sti,.\v the total widths 
of roadb' d -Mid amount:- of cxeavation for a 
cut of 6 ! id for a cut of 5 feet:

In the abuve tables nu account is taken of 
either increase e-r .shrinkage in bulk uf such 
material. On shallow fills of this nature the 
tirst eltect would be a slight increase in bulk, 
which wuuld tend to make tin ruad a trifle 
wider, Ijut the ultimate result would be prac- 
tically what the figure-, in the tables indicate 
Ihat tendency always acting for the out.side of 
the road to beconie lower and the inside 
liigher. must be ovcrc-une by rei)airs. We 
see from the tables that while we should 
cut 8 feet into the bank for a double-track 
road, with only ^5-t^4 as much excavation, 
or that the double-track rmul re.piires tnore 
than two and one-half times as much exca- 
vation as a single track 

In sidehill grades in roek. the ciuiditions 
are very different. Rock excavation- ,ire 
made by blasting, which throws a lar.L;< I'rti- 
portion of the rock down the hill, .md con- 
sequently the material thus broken otu can- 
not be depended on with any certainty for fill. 
That which dots remain available increases in 
bulk about 50 per cent.

Although the Illinois Legislature failed to

purpose, the subject of improved rt^ads has

the subject is even nnire important than ever,

appertains Ut the oon>inu-iiMn nf brick wheel

power required to the wheels of ve- 
hicles. It is clainud that the brick tracks 
are adapted alike In the country roads and 
city residence >tri(tN and that they can be 
constructed at a c<»si ,,f :is> ilian 50 cents 
per ffMit. The tracks arr so ^vcn that a 
greater can be hauled on them with 
less I'Mwer than on any other form ..f road

usual cost of repairing stnm and earth road 
ranges frnni $50 to $ino p. r rnilc each year 

He adds: "This would also make the 
rural free delivery of mails possible to every 
part of the country, without aid from the Ma-

an indirect mud tax of $3,000,000 this year

Oil for Kaasan XtMiln 

The proposiiii-n tn make a practical te&t 
«^t sprinkling the nf .Sacramento 
County, in Kansas, with oil has been (Ii>cussed 
by the local IJnard of Supervis,,rs. which or- 
dered an expenditure of $750 tn give the 
method a trial. 

Supervisor Brooke sai<I that he already 
taken steps to give the oil pmce^^ a trial. 
He has succeeded in getting a couple ol small 
heating tank put up at the county hospital. 
">» that the cost of heating would amoimt 
to next to nothing. He anticipated applying 
a i.t nil to three or four |)ieces of 
probably four miles in all- Ininre the winter

that cold application would be worth a trial. 

Dodge <i. R. haw Constitutional

Ohio, has rkclarecl entisiiiutional the I)o<1kc 
Good R(»ad^ Law. pa>sed l»y the Ohio Leg- 
islature a trille more th::n live year^ ago. The 
author of this measure was the Hon. Martin 
Dodge, now Director of the ()H'ue of I'ub- 
lic Road Inquiries. Washington. A full bench 
rendered the <leii>ion, the opinion in which 
was written by Judge Hale. The case is en- 
tiled The State of Ohicj ex. rel. Peter Witt 
vs. W. K. Craig et al., Mr. Craig being 
County Auditor, and the syllabus reads as 


(1) The act «»f April. iS«>». entitled "an 
act to supplement sections 2,6jj and 2,637 
Revised Statutes of Ohio," being sections 
2.822-1 t«> 2.8.' _' 4 and 4.63/1 to 4.637- n Re 
vised Statutes, providing for the impro\e- 
ment of county mads Ijy County Connnis- 
sioners, whatever may be its infirmity, where 
privati' property i^^ taken, is nt>t open to the 
objection of its unconstitutionality where no 
private pr<tperty is taken. 

(2) Section 4.fi37 I Rivisiij Statute- and 
following sections were nitended to comer 
Upon County Commissioturs ample power 
to improve county roads, determine the cost 
and expense of the same, and the proportif»n 
to be asscssetl upon the owners f»f jiroperty 
abutting the proposed improvement, and the 
prof>ortion to be pai<l from the road im- 
provement fund, and the proviso in section 
2.822-2 Revised Statutes, requiring one-fourth 
of the cost and expense of such improvement 
to be assessed upon the land abtittina upon 
the improvement, in nt> way atTects such 
power, and should be disregarded. 

Cl) Such an act, therefore, is not tinconsti- 
tutiona! because of the prtniso in .section 

(4) Such act confers authority upon County 

Commissioners to improve a part of a county 
road lying within the city limits of a mu- 
nicipal corporation. 

As an immediate result of this decision a 
nunil)er of the roads in Cuyahoga County are 
now being improved. 

Horticulturists Want iwood Roads 

At the September meeting of the Ohio Hor- 
ticulturists, the following quertion was 
brought up: ".Xre good roads of any benefit 
to horticulturists?" .\ lengthy discussion en- 
sUeil. the opinion Inifig horticulturists, 
because t.f the articles they haul

An interesting and instructive piece of ma- 
cadam road building is now under way at 
the Western limit oi the city of Cleveland. 
Ohi«.. directly Mppo^jte Svn.itor Mark Ifanna's

vard is claimed by the Contractor to be the 
best bit «•! roadway in the United States 
at its Cost, and is attracting much attention 
•nd favorable comment amotig the local en- 
gineers and constructors because of its evi- 
dent refutation of the clann heretofore main-

•jti and compactfd. It is finished at 15 inches 
and is asserted ti» be 75 per cent, better in 
all respects than Telford boulevard work done 
during recent years for the Cleveland park 
board by the same contractor at $3^)5 a yard 
on a $i7o,wx> contract. It will last longer, 
requires only about a quarter as much sprin- 
kling, costs less for general niainienaiuc, and 
is much more difficult to tear up. This great 
differi-nce in cost is said to l)e <lue i<j the 
specifications laid down for the park drives 
by the city engineers, to the expensive ma- 
terials used and to the employment of in« 
specters at high salaries. The material as 
put down in the park b'lulevards, according 
to specifications furnished by the city en- 
gineers, was extremely hard to compact. sUd-

ami. therefore, required a great deal of watcr-

Milidity. In the new work there is none of 
tills displacement of material. 

Only one engineer was employed on this 

new pri\.iie boulevard to determine loca- 
tinn, grades and measurements, and in.spcc- 
iMr> Were dispensed with altogether. The 
absence of inspectors is due to the fact that 
the contractor who is doing the work. W. 
II. Ford, is president of the enmpany for 
wliich the wt»rk is being done— the Edge- 
water Land Company, which is opening tip 
a fine new allotment ft»r resid* nee purposes. 
Under the conditions the e..!i>irnctor has a 
direct perM.iial interest in doing the work 
well ami a> cheaply ,is 1- compatiWc with first- 
c!as> niatirials and methods. 

Before 1 iking the contract for the work 
Inst fall, Mr. b'ord had made a careful study 
.•f t'lnc road work of all kinds. Start- 
ing at Massachusetts, he traveled all the 
^y .Tcruss the continent, visiting the tno^it 
noted pieces nf r«t,Hhv,iy. sHulying tlie 
methods nf building the excellent M.issachu- 
setts and New Jersey State highways, and 
such famous drives as those at Tuxedo, 
Biltmorc, .in«l flic park drives and boulevards 
of Chicago atid the (•olden Gate park in San 
Franci'-c.t He tU«luc»-.l from the informa- 
tion and data ^allured <m this trip the method 
under which be i-i now working. 

A great diiTicuIty was met in the stibsoil. 
the sir.ita dipping at such an angle that in 
less than a quarter mile shale, clay and qutck- 
•land were encountered, while much of the 
road travcrscil a depressic»n that was under 
water each -pring and fall, as it had no 
natural drainagr. nithnugh at an elevation of 

tifty feet or more above the level of Lake 
l\rie, less than an eighth mile away. In 
places, too, the roadbed was three to four 
feet below the surface of this soil. The tir«.t 
requircmejit, therefore, wa'^ to drain this basin 
into the lake, then to excavate to the required 
dei)th for the road foundaiioh, and provide 
ellicient drainage for the road. This was done 
by running trenches 21 inches deep and 14 
inches wide along either sitlc of the excava- 
tion, just inside of the proposed lines of 
curbing, then laying a 5 inch unceinented 
tile at the bottom of the trenches and fill- 
ing with cinders. These French drains were 
conducted into laterals that ».ad their outlet 
in the lake. 

The subsoil, after excavation, was rolled 
to a firm foundation with a i^H-ton steam 
roller. .\t tme place a 33-foot ravine cut 
directly across the projected botilevard, and 
this was filled with the shale, clay and sand 
taken from other portions of the roadbed. 
This was rolled and filled and rolled again 
until a good foundation was secnred. In 
order to bind the top of the clay together, 
where the clay predominated, and prevent 
its molecules from sliding and working up 
into the road material when moist from thaw- 
ing winter frosts, a thin layer of blast fur- 
nace slag, crushed tf» half-inch size and dust, 
was spread over the surface as a preliminary 
to the first thick layer of material. 

But before the aT»pIi*"ation of the filling 
material was biuim. a $io.o(K) rock-crushing 
mill was sit up at the side of the Kickic Plate 
Railroad, a quarter mile from the scene of 
operations. This has ,1 ten hour capacity 
of -^o tons of j'.-inch -lag. ^'M tons of 2j4- 
inch trap rock, tck> !oii> of i-inch trap rock. 
and 40 tr.ns of '.inch trap :n^<] trap dust. 

P.lust furnace flap was (Uci.lod upon as 
Vning the tno^t handy, cheapest and best ma- 
irrinl for hllinc Lncrtt-hed. it co'-t ;> cents 
pir cubic yard on the cars at the rru-lier: and 
crushetl its cost was 75 cent^. Trap rock, 
crushed to 2' j-inch size, cost $550 a cubic 
yard at the mill: crushed to i-incli. $6.50. 
and to Vj-inch and dust, $8 25. The chemical 
composition of slag and trap rock is very 
similar, the latter being a natural volcanic 
rock (the hardest known, beine twice as hard 
.t^ granite and five times as lasting as lime- 
stone for the wearing .surface of roads), and 
the former an artinciai voicamc product 
Slag contaifis approximately 45 per cent, of 
litnc. 20 per cctit. granite and trap rock, ao 
per cent, alumina and 15 per cent, silica. thu« 
being a perfect ariiticial volcanic rock. and. 


acc.r.hng to Mr. J'..rd. the best material for 
I Odd filling. 

So the first layer of filling placed on the 
rjjled loundation was six inches ui jj^-inch 
slag. This was rolled until it was compacted 
t" lour inches, and was followed by a 1 inch 
layer ui i-nich slag, ui turn rolled down to 
'.•-inch. Then I'^-mche^ <if '.inch slag and 
"-iau <\u>{ ua> spread upon tin-, and washed 
and rolled in with sprinkling cart and steam 
lollt-r until all of the voids in the surface 
had been completely filled and it was water- 
proof, the last layer of ,1um having almost 
completely entered into the previous layers 
of slag, leaving only 4^^ inches of compacted 

Cpon this "roof" and "cu>hif»n" was placed 
>< inches of 2ji-inch slag, rolled and com- 
j.;ictr<l 10 tv , inehes, and then a layer of 
I', inches of 'Much slag r.ilkd to ' . inch and 
"filled" with 1 ' , inches of i-inch slag and slag

At the suggestion of Hon. II. S. Farle, 
president of the League of American Wheel- 
men, the publishers of the GOOD ROADS 
MAGAZINE have asked me to contribute a 
series of articles on country road mending 
and country house numbering. This I am 
but too glad to do. as it indicates the awaken- 
ing of an interest in a subject which is of 
great importance to all who have anything 
to do with the country, either as residents or 
visitors, and that includes, without exception, 
every man, woman and child in the land. 

I trust that all the readers of the GOOD 
ROADS MAGAZINE preserve their files 
I'nbroken, as it is more than likely that it 
will be desirable, as we progress, to refer back 
to what has previously appeared. 

Some writers have said that the world has 
no use for dreamers; that action is what 
achieves results. But who arc the dreamers? 
Arc they not the originators? Must the idea 
not be conceived and the plans perfected be- 
fore action alony material lines can begin? 
When that is w^ell done, then is the time for 
cftergelic action. That period has been fully 
reached in country road naming and house 
numbering, and we are now out for results. 
A systematic plan was worked out some years 
ago that met the approval of all thoughtful 
people, but the powers that be have been 
very slow in making use of the system. It 
i* not patented, hut open for all to use, and 
there is no financial push back of it. or it 
would, long before this, have been further 

To simfily number the Ihui-cs consecu- 
tively, as they nught stand at any particular 
time along the country roads, w«»uld have but 
little real use. and that little fr«un the build- 
ing of new houses and the occasional burn- 
ing or abandoning of an old one would effect 
changes which w*ould soon neutralize that 
little usefulness. But by blocking the roads, 
ten blocks of road frontage to the mile, num- 
bering them and using the block numbers 
for house entrance numbers, with distinguish- 
ing letters follow»ing the numbers of all but 
the first one in a block, we have a plan which 

can iu\rr bt tin.. w 11 out of order, and which 
Is useful m the extreme. This system is 
known as the ten block system of numbering 
country li.ui^is. There are several features 
which belong to and form a part of it, such 
as arranging the roads in suitable lengths for 
naming, selecting names, guide boards, block 
stc.nes, house numbers, etc., which will be 
taken up in order, together with more than 
a score 01 marked advantages which this sys- 

teM possesses. 

This is a county affair, and all the roads 
of a county should be included in one sys- 

The steps to be taken in order to obtain 
results are: 

I. Organize a Road Blocking League in 
each county. Don't be frightened off by the 
sound of this. It is well to give it a gowl 
name. Names have their uses, but this county 
leaiiue may consist of but three mcmliers or 
any larger number. Three members or an 
executive committee of three could give good 
attention to the duties. More members can 
be added at any time, but do not wait for 
Ihem. A backing of a large membership 
m the league would give weight and inllucnce 
if they were needed. The duties of this league 
are not many, but they arc important, and 
may be arduous. The first move is to get 
the Ciiunty Board of Supervisors to appoint 
a road-naming and investig.-iting committee, 
the liest men for the place lo be sehcled. 
The hagne shoulcl do this, interview them, 
gain their consent to serve, and suggest them 
'- ill. snper^ | be li.mne should keep 
in t.-u.h with all parts of the work all the 
v ny flirMijgh and sn that it never comes to a 
standstill, and that it pmgrv^^v^ along the 
best lines. 

2. .Secure the appointing of the 
ing and investigating committee sp.iken of 
above by the County Board of Supervisors, 
J'ivc would be a aood nuniher for thi« rnm- 
mittce. who should serve without pay, and 
they should live within easy access of each 
rther. so that they could easily hold their 
meetings. This is very imporlant, as. other- 


wist', their work would drag. The duties of 
this committee wcnild be to arrange the roads 
of the entire county into the fi west and long- 
est lengths practicable for naming' and sug- 
gest a name for each of the supervisors to 
pass upon; to investigate and rtport upon the 
advisability of having the houses numbered 
and, if it is favored, give the method of doing 
it in detail, according to existing conditions, 
with an estimate of the cost. 

3. Blocking the roads consists in carefully 
measuring them and dividing each mile of 
their length into ten equal parts, or imag- 
inary blocks, and taking careful field notes 
which should be neatly written out and pre- 
served. This work should be done by con- 
tract, at a specified rate per mile. The 
blocker should also write out the word- 
ing for the guide boards. 

4. Making and placing of guide boards and 
block sionis.— This should l»e lit in one or 
two contracts. 

5. Placing and maintaining house entrance 
numlwrs — This should be done by the house- 

These arc the main features. The details 
will be taken up later. 


Now, the first step is to organize leagues. 
Let three good men meet and league them- 
selves together to take up this work and 
stay with it until it is an accomplished thing. 
Lit each one of those who read t1n> be 
among the ones to take the lead in forming 
*uch a league for h\< own conjity. A^ >o.>u as 
you can, send in an atniounci ini nt t>t this

the order in which tluy are rici i\rd. and their 
names will In- publislird in this magazine. 

Write fully, asking any and all 
fiicts. The c|U«siinns r;ii««td will In il'->i.ti'*>«'d.

Colonel Pope Tnlks Gootl Roads 

Colonel .\l!)ert A. Pope, founder of the 
good roads movement m this country, and 
who endowed the first proies-.ional chair in 
any college for the sj)ecial instruction of road 
engineers, was in .Seattle, Wash., on the 13th 
of September, as the guest of General Nel- 
son A. Miles, with whom he traveled across 
the continent. 

In a speech delivered by the Colonel on 
the occasion of Seattle's new road law, he 
said, in part, as follows: 

*'V<inr new road law here should not have 
a smgle vote cast again-i it," lu- began, "and 
there is no question l»ut that a prtjper un- 
derstanding of such efforts would make 
friends for such laws, wherever proumlgated. 
Good roads are good civilization, worth all 
they cost and more. They are ijrofitable not 
only to the residents of the city into which

Autos and Good Roads 


I From "The Book <»f Sport-." published by 
J. E. Taylor & Co., 5 East Si.xteenth street, 
New York City, we quote the fidlowing ar- 
ticle written by Colonel Jednt Jacob Astor. 
the multimillionaire. Colonel -\stor is a firm 
believer in the possibilities of the horseless 
carriage, aided by goitd road>, and he has 
J. in himself on record for expressing the 
ttracly opinion that a trans-cotitinental high- 
w.iy sli»>uld be built without delay by the 

"The Book of Sports." which was recently 
put upon the market, is an edition de luxe, 
costing $100 a vedumc. and having among 
its contributors many notable men.— Ed. | 

The automobile is so natural an evolution 
and filU such a long-felt want that there can 
he uei ijuestion a-, to its career. Every im- 
provement in transportation is a distinct gain, 
and ever since the aborigine ofund that the 
earih would bear part oi hl^ Imrden if he 
dragged, instead of carrying it. imprr)vement 
has been going on. The possibilities of auto- 
inobiling are, moreover, so ^aeat. and the 
benefits so far-reaching, that it has become 
a fascinating study for any one interested in 
the %velfarc of mankind, to say nothing of 
the welfare of our equine friends. 

My first experience with automobiles was 
HI 1899. I hired an electric one at Newport, 
and liked it so much that now* I have quite 
« Cfdiection. While abroad last spring I 
made a trip from Tan- to Mars«lle^. uvini^ 
an up-to-date French machine. An electric 
one was. of course, out of the question for 
siich a distance, and steam m.irhinc* were not 
to be had. The best roads in France for 
h»ng distance running ar? those to Mar- 
seilles and Bordeaux. 

My chauffeur wai^ an excellent mechanic, 
but unfortunately did not know the road, so 
that smeral tinie> we got otT the route, atid 
it to. »k five fl.iys to make Mar-ejlh-'i. . , . 
The French seldom interft re with -[(etily trav- 
elers, and. m fact, rather enioy the ■-•h » tacic 
of an antotnobile flying along at a sixty kilo- 
nicter gait, which, on their r^tads, is not cspe- 
ciallv dftiicult. 

1 he aulome)bilc will, undoubtedly, do more 
for good ro.als thati all other factors com- 
bined, because, while bringing health and 
pleasure to those u>ing it for enjoyment, it 
will be a great convenience to the business 
man and will the profit of the farmer, 
so that all these will Iiavc a common interest 
in extending it> and In providing what 
It must |,a\L- to give good results— that is. 
good roads. 

1 e» produce a practical country road, the 
location, if it is a new road, is the fir>t con 
^deration. Avoid steep hills for two rea- 

«'n^— a steep hill reduces the possible load. 

tiid makes the maintenance expensive on 
account of washing during every heavy rain 
Six to eight feet of elevation to every hundred 
leet of length is about as sleep as a hill should 
he, and a uniform standard of only four or 
fi\e per cent, is much better. 

Next in importance to easy grade;, i. 
siraightness. The straight line being the 
shortett distance between two points, the 
road engineer should see to its application 
When the alignment is decided fill all low ami 
soft places with such surface stones .is the 
country traversed possesses. After this. 
spread about six inches of bmken tone if 
you have a stone crusher, nearly flat o%er the 
wi<lth of road; sprinkle it thoroughly with a 
watering cart, moimted on tires eiv-ht inches 
wifle. and roll thoroughly with a steam roller: 
afti r this spread an equal thickness of fine 
stone, sprinkle and roll as before, and tin- 
road is done. 


The largest M/e of crusherj stone shotdd 
not exceed one inch in diameter and the 
smaller pieces should be no larger than al 
nionds, the more irregular, of course, the 
better, since irregtdarity helps them to knit. 
In bringing an old country road up to the 
standard, it is Inst to attack the hilts--^cut 
through their tops and put the material thus 
obtained in the dips between. This kills two 
birds with one stone an<l is e.isily worked, 



since material is always being niuved to a 
lower level. The road ^h<luId be widened to- 
ward the tenets and the excessive crown re- 
moved, and provisiun ninst always be made 
for carrying water under the road by a suf- 
ficiently large pipe when the line crosses a 
gully or any place that may ever contain a 

'1 he mad maintenance and lietternient also 
call for an ordniance requiring the use oi 
rubber for very wide tires by all vehicles, the 
width incrLasing with the weight carried. 

The more a roati is u-ed by vehicle.-., ><. 
equii»;»ed, the better it will beconie, especially 
if the surface is not roughened by the feet 
of lioi A- stniijuliii^ to drag their loads up 
steep lulls. It h.'is luiti dtin. in -^t I atetl in Mas-

The Statu and country good roads conven- 
tions luhl along the route, and the lessons 
given in the proper handling of modern road 
machinery and road material, have proven an 
inestimable education. 

The International Good Roads Congress may 
be called the "grand finale" of the good roads 
train journey, and a practical closing of the 
active work of the first year of the national 

Colonel Moore issued the call early in July, 
and so generally were the invitations sent out 
by the governors accepted that on the i6th of 
Scptemlwr. when he called the meeting to or- 
der, he faced delegates from every State in the 
Union, and several foreign countries gener- 
ously sent delegates — Canada responding with 
two of the most helpful workers in the cause 

After the usual preliminaries, the congress 
took up its carefully arranged programme, un- 
der the g\iidance of Gov. W. S. Jennings, of 
Florida, as its permanent chairman, and with 
"The Genial Colonel" — as Mr. Richardson, of 
the National Good Roads Association, is 
known — as secretary. 

The programme contained the names of such 
men of eminence and rceogniEed ability to 
treat this question as the Hon. Edward A. 
Bond, State Engineer of New York; Hon. 
James Wilson, Secretary of Agriculture ; Mar- 
tin Dodge, Director. OfVice of Road Inquiry: 
Hon. Aiulrew Patullo, Member Provincial 
Parliament and President Ontario Goo<l Roads 
V-isociation ; Ji^hfi A. C. Wright, of New 
York: Gen. Roy Stone, of Washington: Wtn. 
E. McClintock, Chairman Highway Commis- 
sion, Massachusetts : Senator H. S. Earlc, of 
.Michigan, President of the League of Amer- 
ican Wheelmen: Lewis M. Haupt. C. E., Isth-

mian Canal Comnnssion; H. M. Chittenden. 
Captain Corps Goverrnneni Engineers, \Ml,,\v = 
stone National Park; Prof. J. A. Holme^. 
State Geologist of North Carolina; and Hon 
A. W. Campl)ell, Deputy Minister of Public 
Works, Ontario, Canada. With but few ex- 
ceptions, these busy men responded, and the 
increased attendance from session to session 
throughout the whole week attested fully the 
appreciation with which their efforts were 
being met and the clima.x of enthusiasm which 
marked the closing session in the Temple of 
Music on the Exposition grounds on Saturday 
showed that between two hundred and three 
hundred good roads missionaries had been 
added to the good cause who would soon re- 
turn to their section of the country and insti- 
tute an active campaign against bad roads. 

The discussions— spirited at times— and the 
questions and experiences given ^ delegates 
showed that they were engaged in a serious 
business, and that minds well stored and intel- 
lects well trained were at work on the many 
problems involved. 

Colonel W. H. Mrx.rc. President of the Na- 
tional Good Roads Association, in a stirring 
address, showed the great importance the good 
roads question bears to the other yreat eco- 
nomic problems which are now occupying the 
public mind. He showed that the present con- 
dition of our highways is the one great ob- 
stacle to the rapid and full advancement of 
our rural popnlation. He said : "The coun 
try mitst have good roads for its own proper 
develnpincnt. and the city must have them to 
assure the supply of brain and muscle con- 
st.mtly flowing to it from the rural districts." 

Governor W. S. Jennings, of Florida, .n

tral good roads train in his section of the 
country. Governor Jennings proved himself 
to be a zealous good roads worker as well as 
ideal chairman. May e%'ery State soon have a 
Governor equally well equipped to lead his 
State to necdetl legislation in this work. 

Hon. Edwart! .\. Bund. State Enquirer of 
New York, was made vice-chairman of the 
congress, and in his formal address gave the 
practical workings of the Higbee- Armstrong 
law in his State. He said: "New York State 
is well entered upon an era of permanent high- 
way construction and owes it to the Higbee- 
Armstrong law." We believe this law is 
among the best yet worked out and that it will 
serve as a valuable ground work for legisla- 
tion in other States. 

Governor A. 11. Longino, of Mississippi, ably 
discussed the natural importance of improved 
highways. He claimed it to ^ of greater com- 
mercial importance to the country than our 
rivets, hartors and canals combined, and must 
receive its proper consideration by our legis- 
Ultive bodies, both State and naliotial. 

Dr. R. J. Davidson, of Michigan, presented 
a carefully-worked-out scheme for rural road 
naming and house numbering, to meet the 
coming needs of our free Rural Mail Delivery 

Mr. John A. C. Wright, the author of the 
Higbcc-Armstrong act. gave an account of the 
struggle which resulted in bringing his State 
into line for good roads via the "State .^id" 

Hon. Martin Dodge. Director of the Office 
of Road Inquiry, discussed the relation of the 
work of the National Bureau, in his charge, 
to the movement for better highways, and 
showed the work he was doing through the 
distribution of tens of thousands of good roads 
bulletins, and the numerous sample pieces of 
road constructed at remote points of the coun- 

Iry, -o far as the very meagre appropnations 
ui Cduj^re^s would pernnt. 

Horatio S. Earle, Pie-itlent ».r \hv League of 
.Xniericau Wheelmen, ga\e a luusing sjieech. in 
NKliich he pleilged the contnmed .-^upport of the 
\\lietlmen to tlie good Toads cause. He said

a\.i!la)(Ie days per year of oiu- convicts miglu 
1h t ither taken from harmful competition oi 
put to helpful work on our public highways. 
He proposed a plan by which the Governmcni 
might come into complete knowledge of the 
exact condition of every road, and how this 
knowledge must result in remedial legislation. 

Andrew l'atull.», of Canada, discnssed the 
impKitaiit part wliieh rural transportation 
plays in the nioving of all farm and mine 
prii«luets from the pr«H|ue<r to i««n,umer and

get products from the farm to the railroad 
as from the railroad market lo Europe, la

million dollars annually in excess cost of 
transportation by reason of bad road-, 

Mr James H. 0%vens, of New Jersey, re- 
viewed very fully the work done in that State 
Hiice 1870. when better road botlding meth- 
ods were first introduced. The State aid 
|ilan wa- imt developed till iSyi. They are 
ti.w -p^ tiding $150,000 annually, and have ^00 
iiii!< •- f»f fiigh-class roads built. About 10 per 
cent of the public revenue goes into road 

M Vaillant. r»f nelgiuin. brought the greet- 
ings of his country, and said the roads of 
Belgium were fast becoming go«nl roads un- 
der a plan of administration resembling 
closely the "State aid" plan, which is gaining

He maintained that the establishment of 
the National Postal Savings Bank system 
would create a fund sufficient to build one 
million miles of good roads in this country 
during the next ten years, with no increase 
of taxes upon the people.

It is worthy of imticc, however, that of the 
seventy seven vehicles which started in the re- 
cent New \'«irk Bnffahi endurance contest, 
f.irty-iwu. or m-Te than half, reached Roches- 
ter on Friday. When ii is remembered that the 
daily nm this year has averaged nearly eighty 
tniles. and that fully eighty jier cent, of the ve- 
huies engaged in last year's trial were disabled 
in lint way or another .111 a much shorter 
course, it will be veeii that a highly gratifying 
record ha» lUst been made I'ar greater pow- 
ers oi endurance have been sliiiun now than 
were exhibited then. 

This result is the more significant when the 
highways traversed and the weather encoun- 
tered are taken mto consideration. Up 
through a large part of the State the roads 
are scarcely wide enough for teams to pass 
each other. .And a little swerving from the 
middle, especially when going at a high rate

the day before by the dense clouds of dust 
which enveloped the conteslanls. The gradual

This annual cvi tit is of enjoyable interest t(»

they went ovtr the route together, were 
mounted on the ohl-style "ordinary" higli

have come to bicycles aufl cycling since those 
«arly days, when t«» l»e the proud possessor 
of a $150 liicycle entitled one li» almost as 
much distincticui as is shown nowadays to the 
o%vncr and driver of an automobile. The 
cheapening of the l.>icycle has robbed it of 
much of its fornuT exclusivencss and tlesir 
ablencss. The same result may come through 
the cheapening of the automobile. That the 
moj»t cKcellent fraternal spirit that marked the 
early days of cycling was of a warm and lasi- 
itii^ character was proved once more when tlu 
boys of 1879, now silver grays, met to live 
over again the scenes of long ago. They went 
so as to play baseball, and we do not 
doubt they refused to complain of aching 
joints the next dav.

Mr. Daniels, of WisctJiisin, in an able ar- 
guiiunt, laid that roa<l building .should be 
taught in our coniinuu schnols. He would 
establish in evcrv cnuntry an industrial school, 
in which practical road construcii<»n would be 
taught, aiiHMiK other important subjects of 
prime ifiterest to the farm, 

Mr. llamillon, of rrnnsyhania, gave a 
I'orceiul atUlit ss uu the imiK»rtanee of en- 
larging the road district. He luld that the 
town ua.s the best unit, and that we must 
keep men in chargi- of the road building untd 
Jie iHCorius a road builder, then keep him at 
work upon the road every da\ of the year, ex- 
cept Sundays. 

Mr. A. \\ . Campbell, of Canada, gave an 
aihlrc^" of gnat helpfulness to good road 
W(trUtrs, in which he treated the most im- 
jtortant feaiuns of a prupirly constructed 
roadway. Jle placed drainage at the head and 
arranged jjther details, such as grade, loca- 
tion, fomulation, surface, etc., in the order of 
their impurtancc in highway construction. 
Jie said, "We spend our money without rule, 
reason or design, and the business methods 
we employ in our road building would ruin, 
m five years, the best construction company 
in the count •■y."' 

Professor J. A. Htdrnes, Stale Geologist of 
N<»r»h Carolina, gave an able address on *'The 

I^'unction of the (i'«\ i rnmrtn. the State and 
the Coimty in .American Highway Improvi- 
meni." He rnluced it to Slate aid, with local 
conlrol. North Carohna is using convict 
tabor with gratifying results, it costing the 
Slat, but twenty live cents a day to keep them 
employ t<l in preparing material for surfacing 
roads. He held that the State -hould borrow. 
on account of reduced iiitire.-t rate, and 
build St.ite roads. AKo tliat the tiovernment 
shouUl h.ive at least one road engineer in 
each Slate. 

Mr. A. H Baltey. edil..r of the New York 
Triweekly Trilume. discus-ed ihe rclati«»n of 
the metropuhtan press to the good roads 
cause, ami assured the c. ingress that his pa- 
per weiulil contimie, as in the past, to work 
for better roads. 

.\n agreeable change from the taxing 
work of the papers and discussions of the 
congress was given to tUIeg.des in a pleasant 
visit to (irand Island, a short steamer ride 
from the city, where the work of actual con- 
stmcling was in progress. The machinery, 
irom rocK crusiui lo iraciion engine, from 
the good roads train, was here in the hands 
of expert operah^rs. demonstrating its ef- 
ficiency in modern methods of road building 


'ihe folhiwing sentiments were adopted in 
stiilable resolution: That the Ct.jverntnent 
(jood Koads (JItice should be enlarged to a 
Government Bureau. That $150,000 should be 
given annually to this work. That the work 
of the Nalieinal Good Hoads Assi. elation be 
highly coinmended. 'lliat the Illinois Cen- 
tral and the Lake Sh'.re i*t .Michi.uan South- 
ern Railroads be tendered a vote 01 thanks 
for their hearty support of the good roads 
work. 1 h.'it rural free mail delivery be rap- 
idly extended. That the 1 xcellent work of 
the League of American Wheelmen be com- 
mended, Tliat the Governtnent should carry 
to speedy completion the contemplated sys- 
tem of roads in the Yellow stune Nationat 

That convict labor, where practicable, be 
employed on our highways. 

The last session of the congress was held 
in this large audttoriumt and no better proof 
need be given of the interest this subject 
holds in the public mind than to say that 
it was crowded with eager listeners through- 
out the The speeches of President 
W. H. Moore. II S. Earle and Andrew Pa- 
tidlo rosi- to the f.rce and dignity «>f orations.

In Ciinslructing mountain road^. a sidehill 
plow, with revt rsible share, is a sine qua 
non. Ihe writer has seen six strong mules 
and four men working liard to run a furrow 
nphilU when two animals, attached tandem 
to a sidehill plow, and two men could have 
done more work, and with much greater 
ease. It is surprising how rapidly a sidehill 
grade can be constructed with such a plow 
and a scraper. When the two lines of stakes 
are in (grade ami slopr stakes), you start 
right and ytui come out right. Your inside 
bank has the right batter and your rtiad the 
lull width y«m meant it should have. It is 
very common t«t sec a contractor on a moun- 
tain road, who attempts i.» grade wtth»nit 
slope stakes, find his roadbecl too narrow. 
It is too late for him to use his plow, and 
he must widen out with pick and shovel; the 
last operation costing perhaps as much as 
the entire gradJnc shmild have cost if done 
rightly fnmi the ^lart. 


In the mountains we nfion find the hillside 
slopes covtred with liroken stone of %*arious 
sixes. Tins we call slide rock This slide 
rock may lie very coarse and the surface 
ragged, when it is called "heavy slide." It 
may be fine and liound tnqethcr by <:oi!. in 
which case it can be pUnved It may be fine 
and dry and run just like dry sand when one 
attempts to walk on it or otherwise di-turb 

it; this is called "fine slide rock.'* To con- 
.•^iruct a road in coarse slide we build a re- 
taming wall on tlu- outside of the grade of 
large rocks weighing nut less than 75 pounds 
each. We then shape our roadbed, making 
It as suiiHtth as possible with the material 
at hand, and cover this surface with tine 
slide. .Ml rock retaining walls for mountain 
roads, when laid up dry, -liould have a bat- 
ttr of one hon/emial to two vertical. They 
>lioul«l only be ti-.(l wluit the filling behind 
tncm i> Coarse rock. If u>ed to hold loose 
iiKiitital, With a batter ot mu' or two. they 
may b. u-radually croudid out and the bank 
give away. If made U-^ steep than one hor- 
izontal to iwo vertical, to hold loose material, 
the method is too espensive to be «jrdinarily 
l>racticable. Coarse and rough and discour- 
aging as heavy slide may look, the very best 
results may be obtained in it if the entire 
proci-s IS accomplished carefully and con- 
scientiously. It furnishes an absolutely solid, 
perfectly drained road foundation, is unai

lay for repairs than any other variety of 
mountain road. 

The following instructions, carefully ob- 
served, will always yield satisfactory and grat- 
ifying result ji; 

Stake out the grade line, setting the stakes 
about 25 feet apart, and drive thein down 
as tirnily as possible. They will stay in place 
for a time if put in deeply enough. Slope 
stakes in fine slide rock are useless. As it 
always stands at about the same slope (J5 
degrees), the process is very uinform. 

For a single track, put up another row of 
stakes vertically 7 feet beluw the grade 
stakes; for a double track, 10 feet vertically 
below. These lower stakes determine the foot 
of the cribbing wliuh must hold the road. 
It is thus constructe<l: The logs should 
never be less than 10 inches in diameter at 
the small end, and the larger, the better. The 
crosspieces .sheiuld be uniforndy 8 inches in 
diameter. That kind of available wood should 
be selected which experience has shown will 
rot most slowly, and all bark must be care- 
fully removed. The logs need not be of any 
definite length, but the courses should always 
break joints. Now, beginning at the lower 
row of stakes with pick and shovel, make a 
bench, and on its outside edge carefully bed 
the bottom log. Then dig into the bank ami 
bed each cro«^|iitc« riiesc should l>e 5 feet 
apart from center to center, with cross notclu s 
to lit triangular edges m the logs, just as 
house logs are fitted together. This notch- 
ing should be done with much care, to per- 
mit the logs to just touch, so that the cross- 
pieces may be weakened as little as possible. 
The proper length for these crosspieces is 8 
feet. They should never be bedded level, but

sionally, but this will not be a serious item 
*tt cost; in other ways the roadbed will be 
very satisfactory. It has natural drainage,

as at first. 


In laying out mountain road> we often en- 
counter a spongy soil tilled with water, es-

The Goml Roads special 

The Southern Railway has arranged to do 
a great service to the large section of the South 
through which its lines run. 

The South has no greater need than the im- 
provement ><i its roads, and the Southern Rail- 
way will contribute immensely to this cause 
by sending t.. many points in its territory what 
%viil be known as ''The Go^ Roads Special." 

This is to be a train of twelve cars, which 
will bring a number of experts in road-build- 
ing, and skilled instructors in the actual work 
o£ constructing and keeping up roads. They 
%vill bring along also a supply of the best tools 
for use in road construction, and will give il- 
lustrations of their proper use. 

The object of this enterprise is tn encourage 
the organization of good road- t .ciations. 
and to illustrate the liest methods iif modern 
road building. 

The party will reach .\ilanta Novemter 2; 
and will spend four days there. The other 
points to t>e visited are Danville, Raleigh. Ashe- 
ville. Columbia. Greenville, Birmingham. 
Mtintgomcry, MoJnle, Chattanooga and Knox- 
viUc. .At each of these places a stay will \w 
made of sufficient length to enable the experts 
to give very valuable lessons, and in .Tid in 
organizing a permanent Ineal gno<| rnnds as- 

I he possiliiiiiifi nf go.Ml that may result 
from the visit of "I he Good Roads Special" 
are incalculable. They depend largely, of 
course, on the cn-operation of the friends of 
good roads in the localities visited and the 
surrnundinff coiinirv 

We are sure that the people of Georgia and 
the other Sfaif iliroiigh wfitrh the«e r«d 
builders are to go wilj appreriale lit*! Pppor 
tunity thill afforded. 

It would be a good thing for the State of 
Georgia if every one <if its counties would 
send a delegation to witness the work of "The 
Good Roads Special" in Atlanta, and many of 
them will doubtless do so. 

In almost e%'ery part of Georgia there is 
an abundance of excellent material for road 
building, and with the application of jiroper 
methods, this material could hi worked sn 
a-^ I > < fh ( t an improvement in the roads of 
Georgia .It a cost very small in comparison to 
the liencfits that would accrue. 

Kvery time a goo«I mad is substituted for a 
bad one, the wealth of the country in which 
tlie change is made i> uicreased. The value 
of all property on or near the line of im- 
proved roads is increased immediately.

Cycling Up the Vasig 


September I wrote of a very pleasant ride 
that we enjoyed on the Luneta of an evening. 

But there arc many other very interesting 
roads in and about the Oriental metropolis, 
though, of course, most of them are quite 

Next to the Luneta, a ride up the Pasig 
River by the old foulpath is, perhaps, the 
most entrancing to lovers of nature. 

Perhaps a start from the Escolta will be 
most convenient, for that is the center of the 
hotel and business district. 

As in reaching the Luneta, we had to cross 
the Bridge of Spain, so we must recross it to 
follow our new route, for we do not at once 
follow the river. 

Leaving the bridge, wc spin along the 
smooth streets, turning many corners, until 
the stranger is entirely bewildered. 

Here and there we note an American sen- 
try or a Macabebe policeman, slowly pacing 
their beat, continuously on the alert, for one 
cannot tell at %vhat moment there will be 
trnubU" in Manila. 

Crossing Pace Bridge, we find ourselves 
in the suburbs, and a few minutes later we are 
swiftly rolling along in the rural districts. 

One of the old block houses at- 
tracts our attention for a moment. They are 
built of heavy tmibers, and are almost inac- 
cessible to an attacking party, being ele- 
vated on logs, set firmly in the ground. A 
small slit between two of the timbers used 
in construction runs on the four sides of the 
house, so that the ritlemen within may pro- 
tect every approach, with comparative safety 
to themselves. 

A short distance further on is located one 
of the finest convents in the Philippines, and 
our minds revert to the days of the Spanish 
friar, who was absolute monarch and ruler 
of the devout Filipinos who attended his 
church. But the friar is a thing of the past 
in the Islands, and the Filipino priest has 
taken his place. 

Two miles more, and we are riding into 
the little village of San Pedro Macati of 
which William H. Thomas has written st) en- 
tertainingly in his "Manila Romance."

and .Hpecitications s, mt to Constantinople, 
whence ordei s n.r the construction of roads

After a few days spent in Buft'ain, Mr. Kdily 
was joined by Mrs. fuldy. and ihcy traveled

of the Berkshirts. Sprintrfu-ld, an<l Worcester

made in one da\, bttuct ti Biiflaht and liocton, 
was I JO miles.

arriving in New ^'nrk on the evening <.f Sep-

I'rom New N'urk the Chicago couple 
--tarted. on September 14, to Buflfal". over the 
same route taken hy the automobiles engaged 
in the endurance test. While no attempt was 
made to reduce the record between those 
fHiints, at times the distance traveled in one 
day exceeded that made by the tnachines cn- 
terecl in the competition Mr. Fuidy arri%»ecl 
in Buflfalc) exactly five hours behind the en- 
ihirance schedule. 

On September 21 they left Buffalo, crossing 
into Canada, and traveled to St. Catharines. 
( >nl. That evening Sundav—thev dined in 
London. After nif»rc siil,. tripv tb, y arrived 
in Flint. Mich., on Monday evening, where 
they stayed until I'riday morning, visiting 
relatives, and where Mr«. Eddy remained. 

Leaving Flint. Mr. F^ddy started nn the last 
.100 miles of his journey to Chicage» Holding 
to his schedule of 100 miles a day. he arrived 
at his Sheridan road residence last night. 
When be swung into the driveway, he declared 
his machine ran as well as it did the day he 
left home, 


Mr. Eddy was decidedly enthusiastic about 
the excellent condition of the rf^nd>^ of Can- 

"The Canadian roads are far and away the 
best that we encountered." he said "Tbev 
are long stretches of 50 or 100 mt',-. of bard 
macadam roadbeds, kept in admiral^U con 
dition. They are even better than our Chi 
cago boulevards, and kept biMtcr The Mich 
igan roads are a disgrace to the State: so a'-e 
those of Ohio. In the Kastrrn States the 
roads are good in patches The St.itr nutbori- 
ties are making short strefcbi - ,.f snnipb-

of inability to command means to carry out 
our ideas, lie said: "Tin difTerence between 
our railroads and our wagon roaih is that 
the former are the residi of carefully made de-

done, and any other intormatinn deemed of 
inlcrei.t to the public. 

"Froin these data an annual report for gen- 
eral publication should be prepare<l." 

Mr. McDonald commented on the imprac 
lical manner now em()loyed of letting bridge 
Contracts, and ileclared that "sr.iled proposals 
shfudd t>e asked for ^nd all should be referred 
to tho engineer before the commis-u <iu i s award 
the contract, which should go, not always to 
the lowest bidder, for he may be a fr.nul and a 
swindler, but to the man who will build the 
best bridge for the least money." 

It is gratifying to note that the interest in 
road building is on the increase throughout 
the .State. Since the convention .idjomned 
the press of the State has t-ndorscd its pur 
poses and has -trongly demanded that the 
mi>\einent comnunced -hall not b« allowed to 
become extinct f..r want ot a susciiiud elTort.

The gooil rt»ads movement, in the expanded 
-iii-e e.i the ttrfB, has progressed in a tenia 
live and somewhat fragmentary way. Small 
stretches oi scientifically constructe.l highway 
ar< t.» In fouml in many portions oi New 
>«.rk and New Englaml, in Massachusetts 
particularly, and in the .Mitldle West and 
.Northwest sonie adv.tiue has been inaile. 
but results have thus far been largely confined 
t.i object le-si.ns 

(mod roads are evidences of national ma- 
in nty, if not of higher civilization. Our de 
velopment has been so rapid and the are.i 
. ver which our restless pioneer population 
has had to work has been so vast that it is 
not surprising that no greater progress has 
been made in this flirection. 

The economic value of good roads has 
been demonstrated, and it now remains only 
to determine what the best kinds arc and 
supply them as fast as our resources will per 
mit. The autoTuobde iTitercst will be a ptiw 
erful infliuiu «■ in the cause in rloing pioneer

conditi..ii I iiiii>t comply niih t.» retain it, and mv 
t'ontiniicd membership." 

I am m receipt of vour circular request lor re- 
newal of my membership in the League. I encloftr 
herewith renewal blank and $i. though I do this with 
some reluctance, on account of the fact that no effort 
seems to be madi by the Sute organization to secure 
thes^e renewal*. I have «hMM been earnertiv in 
sympathy with the work of the League, but. from 
a business standpoint, it Im^k* as though people wb.. 
should attend to thew nuiitrrs arc woefullv neglect in.j 
thrm. r never recent ,1 .my notice of the expira- 
ti.n ..| inv mcmberHhif.. or request for renewal, and 
I know ut other metnlwr* »irailarly neglectedi." 

■Enclosed plea»e find p<»»tomce order to renew 
my membership This t« the first notice I have re 
cened this year .md ! thought that the I.. A. W 
had gone out of exi*irnee. TrwMtng that the good 
Work may continue." 

"You could have had this latt spring a« well a-

I do want tome one to turn the faucet. ThoH-iand* 

should be asked. If the division omcem will not d^» 
It, Home one else should." 

I he alm\e are a few specimens. We have 
many smh. Tin. writers are comiected with 
tlK- larye duisiMns of the L. A. W, We 
publish for the beiutit of those whcse duty it

St. Loms has luen liolding an Ordinary 
run. which was ino^t extraordinary. Chicag*» 
will liave one <>\ iluse att'airs, as usual, on 
rhank-uiMiig Day. Why not a tricycle run.'* 
Tricycle "CO imI" runs were most popular iti 
tlie eighlie- W f doubt, howe\er. if it would be 
jMissihU. to find .1 tricyck- that would hold to- 
gether enough to be Tnoi.nted. If wc 
could only haul back a handful of youth when 
we take up the pleasures of youth it would be 
well worth the while, even to ride in baby car

i'',^^^v? PK S^^^^^' ACCEi'TAHLE. The 
Century Road Club of America will rccoKuize only 
such cycle records as are made on the public high- 
ways, in .iccordance with the following rules; pro- 
viUcU that no more than one-tenth *.f the entire 
distance ridden shall be on asphalt, wood block, stone 
or brick pavement, or park boulevards. 

separate and distinct classes of distance records are 
recognized: Straightaway ami standard conrs.s. A 
straightaway course may be defined as one having 
starting and finishing points at diflercnt places and in 
«»ne direction, or a course laid out in a straiKht line. 
A standard is one in which the starting and 
hnishing points are at one and the same; such 
as an out and home course, thus compelling rider 
to go both ways. Any advantage gained, such as 
oown Kradc, wind. etc.. on the outward trip must 
naturally be contended with on the return, thus equal- 
uing matters. The adoption of a rule recognizing 
records over standard courses tends to place all riders 
on exactly the same basis. Wherever practicable, in 
courses measuring more than five miles, the starting 
and finishing point should be in center of course, with 
turns at both ends. 

Standard distances: 1, 5, 10, 15. m, 25, 50. 75. 100. 
f^> joo. 400. 500 and 1,000 miles. Twelve and twenty- 
four hour records. Thirty and sixty-day century and 
mileage records. Club Century survivors* record. City 
to city and century course records. Individual cen- 
tury and mileage records for the calendar year. No 
distinction will be made between the pace<l, un- 
p.iced and competitive record, excepting in the one- 
mile distance. Four permissible mile records will re- 
ceive recognition— paced and unpaced flying and paced 
and unpaced standing starts. 

(Other than straightaway.) A standard course may 
be either circuitous, outandhome, or one as defined 
in rule 2, with starting and finishing point in cen- 
ter, with turns at each end. For a one-mile record the 
distance must not be less than one-half mile from 
start to point of return; for a five-mite record the dis- 
tance must not be less than two and one-half miles 
from start to point of return; for ten. fifteen, twenty 
and twenty-five mile records, not less than five miles; 
for a fifty-mile record, not less than ten miles; for a 
seventy-five mile record, not less than fifteen miles, 
and for records of joo miles and upwards, not leas 
than twenty miles. 

straightaway or standard course, twelve or twenty- 
four hour records; cyclometer measurement will not 
be accepted. The course must be a .surveved one. 
and the surveyor's certificate, or a certified copy 
thereof, must be forwarded with the claim; and I't 
must be proven that the distance as surveyed and 
claimed was ridden, 

6. CITY TO CITY RECORDS. City to cttv rcc 
ords will be Kranlrd onlv where distance between the 
two cities is at Iea<*t twenty mile«i. The city uv town 
hall iiuit be used a-, starting and tini-liing point. 
Ifi rides from city to city ami return, the starting, 
turning and finishing points must be at city halls. 

o\ir »o called century cfturses or routes of general 
interest, the city or two hall must be u.sed as start 
ifig or finishing point; except, where access to vuch 
building through the streets is imfirat tie <hl«- on a 
wheel; in which case the start and fini-h may be 
made at a point to he determined l»y ihf State fen 
turion of the State in which the ciiv is located; dur 
notice of the change to be given the Chairman of 
the Road Records Committee by said State Centurion 
before any records over such courses will be eon. 
sidered. such point to remain as the established 
starting and finishing point for alt century riders out 
or into such city. Same rule applies to record rides 
o\cf fMutcs uj K^^titrat interest, where actciis to the 
city hall through the streets is impracticable.
